An early start.

An early start at Meon Shore this morning to catch the low tide. Breakfast on the campervan stove before a few Hours beachcombing before the tide came in.

Cormorants use spreading of their wings to help them dry.Their feathers are not water-repellant but “wettable”, After diving for fish they need to dry their feathers they are often seen perching with wing spread out looking like some prehistoric reptile.

Cormorant wing flapping but no take off!

Turnstone.

Occasionally I see small flat fish when paddling on the beach they have all been about an inch long today I was able to catch one in my net. (possible ID Juvenile Dab.)
