What a great capture. Did you get a selection of birds and glue them to the posts? Love it for It's sheer quirkiness.

Wishing you a cool Yule as I see you are dressed for it. Seasons greetings, Nik

Thank you Nik - that is a much more generous suggestion that making out I PShopped them all afterwards.


I got my driver to stop and caused him to commit illegal parking on the beach while I took this. So he will be pleased I posted it (at last).

For your information.... there are Cormorants, Pelicans and Terns here. They are (I think) royal terns which are very funny birds to watch.

I plan to see the world through green coloured glasses this Xmas Nik when I am not viewing it through the bottom of part empty glass!

Best wishes - Jethro

Nope these ain't gulls, these is terns, royal terns in fact and I don't think yous has them over there.

Nicely spotted, Jethro. It seems that someone had one option too many. Possibly a mistake in the room reservations?

David Brown Photogra… on December 10, 2012

No, Sixten - she is undecided and remains sitting on the fence

You notice how I assume its female. I wonder why I would say that?

Thank you my friend - Jethro

I cannot tell a lie Ian

But rent-a-pole has a whole different meaning!
