Poking the seaweed at Montrose estuary

Off to the Scottish Wildlife Trust centre at Montrose estuary last week for an hour or so of dragging ourselves through the mud. It's a superb site for all kinds of estuary birds and wildlife, though the mud is a bit risky at low tide!

We saw plenty of sandmartins in the artificially-constructed nestbank, but didn't see the kingfisher! There's plenty of different seaweed, lots of life under it, too, and very neat little crabs.

Outside the primroses were in full bloom amongst the fading daffodils. Then it was off for a Danish in a suitably Danish cafe nearby, and back home.
