The first thing I do here every morning is throw open the curtains and look out to see what the weather is like, where is the tide at, and are there any birds?
This morning we had godwits again, lined up quite close to the house, looking for all the world as though they were staring back at me. Perhaps some of them are as interested in the monkeys as we are in them.
Recently I bought a new pair of binoculars and so had a great squiz at this small group preening themselves with their fine long bills.
But I really need a camera with a telephoto lens!
Christmas wish list!
