A morning stroll

This morning me and Alice took a stroll out to let Amy get some more rest. We headed out across town to Hornsea Mere. Alice has been fascinated the last week any time we go under the shade of trees her head darts about looking at the branches excitedly. As we came along the path to the mere she had the double excitement of branches and bird song.

 

The mere was looking stunning this morning with the sun reflecting off the water. Beautiful blue sky and a slight breeze.

A great variety of ducks, geese and seabirds were resting in the sun. I’m going to need to work on my identification skills seeing a greater variety. I can pick out the mute swan, the canada goose, but too many of the others are just duck currently. There are also lots of faster moving smaller birds which I think are sand martins, but my lens isn’t able to take a decent photo at the distance.

The waters edge has some lovely wild flowers keeping the bees happy.

We then walked home back along a section of the Trans Penine trail along the old railway track and seafront. Not too bad for a gentle morning stroll.
