This little guy (girl?) was on baby beach this morning. He seemed OK, maybe just resting but we phoned the sea-mammal folk just in case he needed attention. [Seals are often seen at the North Point, and below Spring Street, but this is the first time I have seen one here.]
Yesterday, very early morning on the way to singing group, I stopped to watch the egret on the pond.
The beach yesterday had lots and lots of ladybirds (ladybugs in US speak), today dead ones. We suppose they hatched in the warm Monday/Tuesday and then got blown away on Wednesday when the wind got up. Wildlife of all kinds everywhere one looks. I am still amazed at the utterly glorious sand which has been returned to the whole of Crescent beach with nearly all the rocks except the big ones neatly piled above the tideline.
