My Photographs from the North West and wherever I may roam.
Let me know when that tide's coming in won't you
Monday, 27 January 2014
I've never made it to see the wader spectacular at Snettisham in Norfolk, but I did witness something on a much much smaller scale at Hoylake recently. As the tide crept in on the beach, thousands of small waders such as Dunlin, Knot, Sanderling, Redshank, Oystercatcher and others were being shunted off their dry ground and being forced to relocate to drier spots. The sight and sound was breath taking. Here you can see a small number of those waders squashed up on the beach.
