A very cold and windy week.  Just one walk around Greenaleigh tracks, binoculars stayed in my pocket.

Using the scope from my living room window I saw a Curlew in Minehead Bay.  I have seen them before but only 2 maximum, most are seen along by Dunster Beach and fields or in fields around Bossington towards Porlock.  The Little Egret was also around but I don’t see it as often as I used to and no Cormorants off the Harbour Wall.  Wonder if it is because more people are walking this end of the beach and disturbing them, or perhaps because I am usually out walking so don’t see them.
