Burton Point

An evening walk to Burton Point along the road through the firing range! I'd never been down there before, thinking it was a military no-go area. But there was a sign saying it was OK if I stuck to the track.

Not many warblers this evening, but lots and lots of little egrets. To think I never saw one in the UK until two years ago! I'm also pretty sure I briefly spotted a raven before it disappeared behind the headland.

There were masses of bullrushes going to seed, and lots of yellow flag irises.

There was also a kestrel being mobbed by a single crow. If, indeed, it is possible to have a 'mob' of one!

A very enjoyable walk. I will return!
