Yellow-horned Poppies and Oysters Catchers

Yellow horned Poppy, Glaucium flavum
Yesterday morning I restarted my swimming regime in preparation for next week’s Maldives trip. A cold hit me last Friday, and halted my pool visits. In the afternoon I strolled along the beach and found Yellow-horned Poppies and Mallow in flower. A flock of Oyster Catchers strutted their stuff on the shingle and ensured I didn’t encroach on their space, which appeared to be a generous fifty metres.
