Seahouses Day Two!

Well I need to be careful how I word this but Day 2 started with a Shag on the rocks in the Harbour and although a Juvenile it was quite happy to pose and was the first one I have ever seen, spent a great day around the Harbour and surrounding Beaches, had another crack at the Eiders and ended the day with catching the Golden Plover perched on the last of the rocks to succumb to the incoming tide.

Holy Island Causeway (Lindisfarne)

Day two brought the shot of my short Amateur photography career and the luckiest, I will never be this close to a Heron again, just passing over the Causeway to Holy Island, when I spotted it out of the passanger window, was so close could only take a shot of it with a small Canon Compact Camera kept mainly for Scenic shots, and has not needed to be cropped at all. As there was traffic behind only got off two shots.

Seahouses Northumberland

A few days to spare before a weeks holiday in NORFOLK found me visiting Seahouses in Northumberland, for the very first time, what a fantastic little fishing village, also had fantastic weather, Day One arrived in Seahouses by 2pm and went straight to the Harbour for the Eiders, the best of which are below, after only seeing one once before at Rudyard Lake and only in dull weather imagine my suprise when I found 15 plus females and approx 6 plus males and not only that they where actually accommodating beyond belief, have gone a little overboard with the Scenic shots, especially on Banburgh Castle, so they will have to follow shortly.

Scenic Shots From The Wirral

Must have been one of the hottest day of the year, yet look left or right and this was as busy as the beaches got, it is just so peaceful and beautiful and as I have said before rivalled only by Norfolk. To My Right

Glorious Wirral

The Glorious Wirral never fails to deliver, must have been one of the hottest days of the year and no better place to be, (except for Norfolk of coarse), but off there in a fortnight's time, just hope the weather holds. Carrion Crow
