Rockits and a Bomb!

Half a dozen Rock Pipits on the Orcombe dung pile this afternoon. Also 4 Golden Plover up there. On the river a single Sandwich Tern. I had a quick look at the estuary on the way home and got distracted by the Bomb Disposal Unit who were dealing with an old WW2 bomb/shell out on the mud. It was detonated whilst we were all eating dinner this evening and the house shook!

Some birds can look pretty pale-lored at certain angles. This one was buffy beneath too.

An effective bird-scarer. The roosting gulls went mental when this went off!

The Bomb Disposal Unit had to be towed out of the mud. Huge respect for those guys. What a job.
