This was another bright and Sunny day, especially up to lunch time. In fact at times it felt a little too warm for comfort and despite being by the sea we didn't get much of a breeze to cool us.
The tide was coming in as we got nearer to the lighthouse and was soon surrounded by water.
As ever on days like this, the beach was pretty popular with lots of young people and young families enjoying themselves.
Lunch was taken along the beach at Presthaven Sands where some of us took advantage of a washed up log as a suitable seat.
Birds today were fewer than expected, but included: Little tern, Herring gull, Sedge warbler, Reed bunting, Jackdaw, Carrion crow, Great cormorant, Oystercatcher, Mute swan, Meadow pipit, Skylark, Common kestrel, Mallard, Mute swan, Greenfinch, Common starling and Common whitethroat.
after walk drinks were enjoyed at the Britannia Inn at Pentre Halkyn. We were also presented with a bowl of very tasty chips which were soon devoured by the three of us!
Overall a pleasant stroll along the beach, but not necessarily Celia's choice, if her comment of being bored is anything to go by!
