    As I'm focused on herons and oystercatchers, I glance to my left to see this Fur seal charging me! My first response is to move back. Then I do what any self respecting wildlife photog would do, catch the moment...then move back, LOL. Turns out it was just trying to get to the dunes for nap...

    I've eventually learned to take my time rounding the corner behind the fort, not charging round and scaring everything off! I watched the male merganser haul out of the sea and walk up the beach to the female.

    Juvenile Little Tern. 6 weeks ago there were no chicks, the adults had only just arrived, and now they have loads of chicks, all out hunting for themselves. A remarkably quick breeding season. Taken froma a good way off to avoid disturbance and getting pooed on by adults :D

    Little Terns on Winterton Beach. The birds om the ground were going through the mating ritual of trying to impress the female with sandeels (she was unimpressed) when the other tern flew in low. Pure chance I was shooting at a high shutter speed.
