On Sunday I had the rare opportunity to do some weekend photography. Having two young children means I don’t tend to get our with my camera at the weekend.
So having dropped my eldest off at a party, I found myself with an hour or so to myself. I decided to have a wander along the beach at Littlehampton.
The beach was full of life from birds to snails. I focused my attention on the birds. The rock pools were full of gulls and crows looking for food and I was also lucky enough to spot a Ringed Plover.
This little bird spent a lot of time running along the beach, then stopping suddenly looking for food. It was quite hard to spot as the brown and beige feathers on its back blended in perfectly with the pebbles!
This group of gulls were searching for snails to eat. They would grab them and then fly up about one metre and then drop them. It was fascinating to watch!
These crows were also enjoying the snails, which could be found in abundance on the beach.
