High flyers and flora

Yesterday (Wednesday) I did manage to get out and decided to go back to the estuary to see if I could get a close look at those birds. I did find out the limitations on my lens as these birds came closer but not close enough. They landed on a small island (at hight water) and I was able to walk down the roadway to get some more pictures. This was still too far for my lens or the birds were too small. I have managed to get one picture with them in flight but it is highly processed so I think that we will have to try again.

I did manage quite a few Gulls in flight and some of there antics look great.





The gliders


Coming in to land


As close as they got

By the roadside were these two plants, I have not looked them up yet




 Today Mike and I are going to take our cameras on the Kingswear Castle which if the weather hold should be fun. The trip is to Oakham ness on the Medway.

That looks like being published for Saturday

  4. I have found out what the purple flower is, A Common Mellow.

    Yes Eileen we don't want the signal and dongle problems as we won't know what D&H are up to.

    Don't worry Chris you can't remember every plant.
