Sea Wall Birding

 

Walking out to Dowlais
On sea-defensive wall
Looking for the waders
Awaiting curlews call

Lapwing and spotted redshank
Beneath the heron's gaze
Swallows skimming water
Foretelling summer days

Pippits 'tween the boulders
Wheatears flashing by
A background soaring chorus
As larks ascend to sky

From out the tide-washed grassland
Goldfinches taking wing
As up along the fence wires
The linnets gaily sing

Incoming tide to gather
Shelduck and dunlin flocks
Oyster catchers seeking
Their food among the rocks

On Clevedon’s open shoreline

United in the sun

Residents and migrants

Enjoying Spring as one
