Turnstones on Bexhill Prom– at last I am able to access my blog site again- apologies for the technical glitch. Taking mum along the Prom today, and most days, the bold Turnstones, so well camouflaged on the pebbly beaches they usually inhabit, show how unintimidated they are by people and human activities. At high tide, after resting on the shingle, they run across the very busy promenade, under the feet of crowds of people, feed on the grass verges and even on the busy roads. Here’s a few photos from today. Conditions: A beautiful sunny afternoon. Temperature: Max 14- Min 8c.IMG_4599

Resting on the beach

The only things ignoring the keep clear road sign were the Turnstones, scavenging for insects at high tide.
