6-11-07 Sunny November still

Had a quick look at the sea before a walk from Seaton Sluice to Holywell pond then Briardene via Holywell Dene to St Mary's Island then back to the Sluice not much to report though it was another bright sunny day a pair of Redshanks fighting along the stream why do they fight so hard and for so long ,one trying to drown the other, just what have they to argue over , still some Common Darters around two paired up and laying eggs , Holywell held no surprises so I did not stay long through the dene and on to St Mary's via Briardene the tide was in with a mass of waders at the start of the prom with also some Purple Sandpipers feeding along the shore also Snipe just beside the viewing wall not much to show for a walk but still not a bad day out
These Redshank where fighting long before I got close enough for a photo and still having a go as I walked away

The Black-headed Gull watched then tried to chase them but they just carried on

Dragonflies in November !!!!!!
St Mary's in the distance ,Purple Sandpiper on the beach
This Rock Pipit had no problem finding food small white things about 1/2" long not sure what they where it took three from this stalk but to fast for me to capture
Snipe from the wall

like the new header, it's a play around thing to get them to fit and work.

That,s a late dragonfly. I thought i had done well getting them in the 3rd week of october
