TIME TO CHEER UP. (17/02/13)

We were out before dawn this morning. There was not a cloud in the sky, there was a cool wind but we walked for miles across the estuary.

_V0G5044_edited-1  It is a vast area. The tides aren’t right for birding till Thursday. I spent ages watching gulls, oystercatchers, several curlew and a few sandpiper.

There are too many people about now so I came home as soon as the area started to be invaded. It has been a really enjoyable morning.

I shall have a wander out later for sunset. Tomorrow I’ll have to catch the train into Millom. Millom is like the less agreeable bits of the third world. I need to get a box to pop the camera in and I could do with a quick nip round a supermarket.

We are due several cool but sunny days…..long may it last.

Have a good week.

  1. My first view this a.m. had a sky full of con trails. Amazing how many aircraft are about early on a Sunday morning.

    1. John, we could do with another volcano. That clears the skies.

  4. Lovely atmospheres. I and UK visitors were recently discussing con trails. We are very luck down here and hardly see a single one. I take for granted the clarity of our skies.

    1. Katherine it is rare to see them hear. It's usually too cloudy.

  5. Hey, my friend ... the pics remind me of an area close to Victoria, BC, Canada ... almost bought a house there a couple of years ago ... when the tides were low it looked just like that ... still thinking of the house ... should have bought it for $220000 ... somebody else did, flipped it and sold it for $500000 the following year ...

    1. Cat.....I suspect one could buy Ravenglass for that sort of money.

  6. I'd forgotten all about the existence of Millom. Isn't it at the mouth of the River Duddon? I spent some time in the Duddon Valley years ago. Good place for Dippers.

    1. Graham, Millom is my nearest shop. It is a pretty grim place. I'll check the river on the map.
