Arthur you're putting me to shame! I know what you mean about the good weather though. Just you wait 'till the beginning of August when the heatwave arrives along with me and the family!

well done sir! Well worth the wait. The composition is great, the bird on the left making one final sweep of the beach to check there are no bundles left to catch up.

Well worth the effort Arthur. I particularly like the way the eye travels around the loop of the composition, just like trying to keep that little lot in order!
