A Visit to the beach at Salthouse.

Decided on last Friday afternoon to have a look at the beach at Salthouse although I knew it was too early for anything decent to be there.

A walk westwards towards the Eye produced several Wheatears,loads of Meadow Pipits and Linnets.In one of the small pools was a lone Dunlin that didn't seem to mind the people strolling closely past as it fed.

A walk to Granborough hill was pretty quiet until what I though was a pile of old ropes turned out to be a juvenile Gannet that was either injured or exhausted.Although a juvenile it was a very large bird with a wicked looking bill.

There was an incident when I was having lunch on the front lawn of the Dun Cow pub at Salthouse when suddenly a very low flying jet fight appeared from nowhere and roared right over the pub.The noise was unbelievable.The lawn got very messy as it screamed overhead and it was not all caused by split drinks.

Hopefully, I will be visiting at the end of September.
