A morning at the beach, Dec 8th


Caught my first sunrise at the beach this morning. Was up way too early and had to kill time at home (you don’t want to be at the beach in the dark…), check the sunrise times and then almost missed out on the glorious pre-sunrise colours ;)
Most exciting sightings were a Flamingo flyby and a Grey Plover.
Sadly the birds were all gone (thanks to someone walking around) when the light finally got better for my lens & camera skills ;) - I hope you can enjoy them anyway.
