We took a day out to the coast to try out our new car (not new new but hopefully one that doesn't eat money in repairs!) and give it a good run. The East coast is one of our favourite places - Filey, Bridlington, Scarborough.......
An early stop at the Holbeck car park in Scarborough on the off chance of a Mediterranean Gull, we didn't see any but the sun was shining and we had a walk down to the sea anyway.
It's a long way down
And a longer way back up....phew!!
On to Brid, the weather by now was a little mixed, cloud, sun, wind and it was pretty quiet everywhere. The tide was coming in and Turnstones were up on the walls around the harbour and I managed to spot two Purple Sandpipers on the beach.
Taking a bath with some Turnstones!
I saw a Cormorant on the marker, looked away for a few seconds and it had been replaced by a Gull!
There were Gulls everywhere of course, i'm still working through IDing them!
Lots of Redshank were in the harbour
We found quite a few shells along the tideline and a few dead fish, some kind of Flounder perhaps?
A plant root I think?
Then my husband found this fossil - we've never found one before so it created a bit of excitement!
In the walls along the jetty's lots of snails were hiding.
This was the scene on the way home
I think nearly everyone who checks in on the blog is probably affected by Covid-19, I hope you're all staying safe and continue to do so.
