A day out.

There is something wrong here, scratches chin AH its a Bank Holiday weekend and the sun is shining!!

Anyway Dad and I went to the small town of Brightlingsea which is on a tidal river estuary.

Birds in flight with a travel lens ? Not ideal but we make do with what we have eh.

Ah cute!

I did have an ulterior motive for going to Brightlingsea, it contains the one Essex church in my list I had yet to tick. I thought it was meant to be open today but it wasn't however a quick call to the Vicar and we have....

747 All Saints, Brightlingsea

There's a commemorative frieze around the church commemorating everyone from Brightlingsea whose died at Sea since 1873. One was on the Titanic.

Looks lovely at Brightlingsea. Black-headed gull flight shots are good. How do you nearly always manage get such sharp shots!

Those ducklings are lovely with their "dolly mixture" colours!

And that's a fascinating headstone with the tree curving around the top.

A good day out there Pete. Obliging Gulls, and obliging vicar. ;)
Unusual mix of colour with the chicks.

I was wondering about the ducks. I guess its a "proper" mallard dad.

to be fair most vicars are obliging
