Let's kick August off with a grey seal earlier today. Walking around here is amazing.

I spotted 2 adult shelducks with 3 ducklings yesterday. Good to see them. Here's a shelduck saying hello to the seals.

A roe deer buck I met yesterday on my walk.

Seaweed isn't just seaweed. I count at least 7 different ocean plants growing in this rock pool. Some of it is probably edible.

Some of it definitely is. Dad always brought dried seaweed home after visiting Ireland. Always referred to it by its Gaelic name as well -Dillisk . As a child I had no idea what I was eating! :laugh5:  Very salty (as you can imagine!)

Met this group of 5 fledglings along the beach today. I'm pretty sure they are Little Terns as there were adults flying around squeaking at them. I'm just waiting to get confirmation that they are in fact Little terns.

Yep, Little terns. They're nesting here with the arctic terns. Hopefully I'll see them again next year.

I was walking across some boggy moorland a couple of weeks back, looked down, and then stood in astonishment for a few minutes. Who would have thought a bog could be so beautiful?

Another colourful one of that bog, this time with bog cotton, as well as the bog asphodel and bell heather.

A couple of common (harbour) seals I met yesterday. I think they're getting used to me :classic_laugh:

For lunch today I had tropical banana drizzled with honey served on wholemeal bread and fresh dairy butter. Interesting combination of tastes, but not sure I'll be having it again.

Banana sandwiches are classic! (I usually add sugar instead of honey though.) Right up there with crisp sandwiches!! Prawn Cocktail crisps in a ham sandwich!  :745432007_dinnertime:
