On Sunday, despite the high winds, bitter cold and heavy showers, we just had to get out with the kids. Donna suggested we pop to the beach at nearby Bovisand,to get pebbles for the kids to bring home and paint on. The kids really enjoyed it, and it proved to be inspiring for me too. As well as the fantastic crashing waves I managed to spot a number of interesting species to take photos of, and then sketch when we returned home.
species seen: black headed gull, greater black backed gull, herring gull, common gull, cormorant,oyster catcher, rock pipit, mallard, fulmar, pied wagtail
