High tide

At Hauxley yesterday the sand had disappeared below the waves which were crashing against a pile of seaweed built up against the head of the beach and a large flock of around 200+ Black headed gulls fed on the shoreline lifting as each breaker hit the wall of vegetation.
Whilst on the pile a mixed flock of Redshank, Turnstone and Sanderling 20 to 40 of each, fed on the many flies and ants among the weed and disgraceful quantity of rubbish.
Then, as the inevitable weekend walker passed by the two groups combined in the air to fly along the waters edge before circling back to land on the outfall and await the passing of the intruder before returning to feed at the same location.
