A Byrds song, turn turn turn

Another visit to Rossall saw me getting the tide times completely the wrong way around, sounds like me.

So I decided I'd spend the time concentrating on what birds do at low water ... feeding.

I also concentrated on one species, Turnstone in the hopes of getting an image of one with a crab (poorly conceived preconceptions), instead managed one or two as they caught some shrimps. You will have to double click the images to see the slideshow to see the shrimp.

I came away with a pound or two of freshly caught shrimp (from local fisherman) and from the catch this weaver fish. Not sure I'll go paddling a low water without wellies or hob nailed boots!

(taken 28 August when I saw the Snow Geese, taken me this long to recover)
