And no photos, but we spent some time birdwatching (I found a pair of binoculars with twice the magnification in a charity shop for £10, made life much easier!) and I gained (mostly with help) a few to add to my life list: Knot, Common Sandpiper, Green Sandpiper, Ruff, Water Rail and Ringed Plover. Not sure I could identify them all without help, except for the Common Sandpiper and Water Rail! But we never did find the Little Stint …

And we had a fantastic view of a Peregrine Falcon hunting down the river valley. It’s been a good holiday, and I’m not at all sure we’re ready to resume our normal lives *sigh*
