Yesterday morning weather was good so I made another visit to the ‘island’ which appears when the tide is out. Today a gale has been blowing all day so I had plenty of time to edit the resulting pics.
Today's gale has confirmed me and the camera indoor. Two kite surfers were speeding along the front.

I saw 5 Egrets on the beach. The other day I met a guy by the Ferring Rife who told me the Rife population had built up to eight individuals. I assume these five are part of the same population.
