Morning wash and brush up. These young gulls are standing on the wet sand attending to their feathers.
The bird watcher is not here for them but for the migrating ducks and geese. Not really identifiable without a telescope, small groups of ducks can be seen with the naked eye.

The sea was rolling in with a lazy power, a bit awesome really, no wind to speak of but a four/five foot swell. The groynes were producing some impressive spray. It`s not that easy to catch on camera so these two are from a batch of fifty photos and the rest have been junked.
I enjoyed the splosh.......

Who said young boys don`t get up in the morning, particularly on a Sunday, or spend all their time on the play-station.

........ `the shop dog` but he does have a name.
This is Dodger, a member of the Robbins family.
And this is Sam`s portrait (in pastels) of him. He is young, enthusiastic and not as philosophical as he looks.
He has beautiful manners and moments of juvenile rebellion.

No photograph today.
Why?? I hear you cry.
Well, the camera was in the car and they caught me out big time. The first skeins , two of them , were the pinkfoots, perfect V formation and not much chat. The rest, several hundred birds, had longer necks and their V`s were more ragged, much changing of position. They were much noisier, as well, chatting away to each other.
What do geese talk about ? Is it who should take a turn at the front, or why are we going to the Broads when we could have stopped up the coast at Wells? Can`t we stop for breakfast now?
They are a wondrous sight.

Lovely windows are going in and the brick box is turning into a room.
I`ve done indoor shots as it is raining, but better than nothing; it`s all getting rather exciting. I had better get on making the chairs, not to mention the table, or the builders will finish before I do.

Very quiet this morning, not even a dog walker and it was nearly 9
These little ones are young black-headed gulls hanging out as they do. After the north winds I was hoping for some driftwood or rope, anything really, but the beach was as clean as a whistle.

Only because I have lost the list of titles; marks for management skills? Not too many I fear.
We are still showing Sam`s land-and-sea scapery ........
at the end of the month we`ll be setting up a couple of exhibitions and events for pre-Christmas joy. With beer and wine. We shall keep you posted.

Some activity on the waves but not many takers this Sunday morning. It was not the best surf and it was before nine o`clock.
The roof is almost done and is looking good, a close match in colour with the old tiles.
The rain has tested the new grill at the bottom of the stream. The leaves and other debris are blocking it and flooding over the
