Silent Sunday…… High and Dry

High and Dry Skippool Creek

High and Dry at Skippool Creek

With high winds and persistent rain outside… its nice to be high and dry inside.

Early Morning……. on a Low Tide


Wyre Estuary, Lancashire Coast

As the tide falls away exposing acres of soft mud the waders and a solitary Heron move in for an early morning feast….. for the observer it is not just the beauty of the occasion but the sound that echoes across the mud flats…the sound of mainly happy birds with just the odd squabble over a sand worm.

If this was a Black & White image  (which it very nearly is) I would have suggested it for this weeks Cee’s B&W Challenge- All about Nature.. details on this link:-

Outgoing Tide on the Lune Estuary, Lancashire

A winters day at sunset…. an outgoing tide, clouds rolling in from the south west, wildfowl and shore birds calling across the mud flats….end to what was a perfect day.

It would be nice if that was tonight’s forecast….sadly not. So best live on memories from the past.
