Sailing-barge and oystercatchers:  'Pudge' off Shellness
Sailing-barge and oystercatchers: 'Pudge' off Shellness
While tacking into the mouth of the Swale the barge has come close enough inshore to disturb a flock of oystercatchers feeding on the foreshore.

Photo taken from close to the Shellness blockhouse on the day of the 2014 Swale Barge Match. Pudge was one of the last of the barges to head into the Swale.
