Sand Martins galore!
At 9.00a.m. this morning the beach was alive with Sand Martins. Scores were using the far end of the Church Norton Spit as a resting place and every so often they would all take off, feed over the water and then return to the pebble beach...at least 200+
...an impressive sight.
It wasn't too long before they were disturbed by fisherman and departed.
