There is a convenient car park just by the seawall, and within a few yards there is a slipway for the local lifeboat to be launched when needed. As I approached the slipway I noted 3 Turnstones running around, and feeding, I started to ready my camera, to get my first shot when a family with children started to approach from the opposite direction. Suddenly the kids started screaming and shouting and ran at the birds, making the Turnstones and any other birds take flight, and the parents did nothing to stop them. What can you do , I gave them black looks and moved on.
Just past the slipway I found these little beauties-----------
|A flock of about 30 Turnstones (Arenaria interpres) that had fortunately escaped the unruly children.|
|I spent quite a bit of time watching their antics.|
|Some where sleeping|
|one or two where preening.|
|Others where just on guard, and if I tried to get too close, all heads would come up, and I new not to push any closer, otherwise they would take flight.|
I enjoyed them, I hope you have. linking to Our World Tuesday---http://ourworldtuesdaymeme.blogspot.co.uk/
