Along the landway on a September evening
Along the landway on a September evening
View south along Manor Way from the point where (behind the camera) the right of way (to Egypt Bay) diverges from the old military track to St Mary's Bay. The afternoon had been a misty one on the marshes, though the higher ground a little further inland had been sunny.

In the sky ahead you may just be able to make out a skein of geese. As I headed towards Swigshole hundreds of greylags - feral birds, not migrants - were flighting eastward in groups of a few dozen. They all seemed to pitch on the drained marshes near St Mary's Bay. It was misty in that direction, so that I couldn't see them, but the assembled flock made a terrific hubbub.
