Pink Balloons

23rd Feb10, Christon Bank, 8am

I have never had so many walks in the snow. Trooper never tires of it which is just as well as another storm sits above the horizon coming our way...

23rd Feb10, Low Newton Pool, 4pm

Nice and sheltered in the bird hide for us but only a few ducks of various types were braving the small areas of thawed, open water.

24th Feb10, Embleton Bay, 3pm

Helium balloons are a nice idea but they can be fatal to sealife. At least these two had blown ashore uneaten so I popped them and binned them.

I spotted this object from a distance and thought it was a walker on the beach. Even the cleanest beach is a dumping ground; a place where the sea can unburden itself of unwanted cargo. perhaps a local crab fisherman will come and claim it back.
