I caught up with lots of them in Norfolk. The beach at Titchwell held quite a few, and that's where I took these pictures.
The sea was the calmest I've seen it here. Usually it's blowing a gale and it's really choppy. On this day you can see the waves just gently lapping while the birds go about their business.
