Jim & Pat and birds on the beach

 Black-headed gull
Jim & Pat dropped in yesterday we had a grand old time catching up with each others news - we last saw them in Saudi 13 years ago when they retired. Since then Jim did a PhD in car crash technology, and Pat took an Honours degree in Archaeology. They are heading for Pompeii and possibly Sicily in their campervan and plan to return in November. They left this morning with their two dogs and caught the 11am ferry from Newhaven.
Now that the butterfly season is pretty well over I am concentrating on birds on the beach, which is great as Sue can easily join me when she can.
