The Sand Martins are back.

 The sand martins were flying around in the sunshine, too fast for a pic, will try to catch them when they start nesting. It has been a glorious warm day, with very little wind, the sea is still a bit choppy after the rough weather we have had over the last few days.
 This little plant is called Spring Beauty and grows on the cliff bottom among the nettles. I think you can eat it in salads but it is well protected by the stinging nettles.

Claytonia perfoliata, pretty! Such a heavenly spring day today. We opted for the garden so I'm glad you posted today to keep me in touch with the beach!

Where do the sand martins go in winter?
