At Seasalter you can either walk along the beach and turn around and go back the same way, or you can walk along the top, the other side of the low wall and turn around and go back the other way. However, we walked along the beach and then clambered over the wall to walk back along the path! I managed fine, Mum did in the end and Bracken found his inner kangaroo and leapt on to the wall and off the other side!!
Along the shingle beach were hundreds of these jellyfish below. We have no idea what kind they are so if anyone has any idea what they are then please do comment below!! They were pretty darn cool though!
We came across this carcass, probably a seal pup?! It definitely looks more mammal like than fish like.
Once we had climbed over the wall, it wasn't long before we had swallows dancing over our heads! Less delightful - Bracken found many a cowpat to have a snack on! I noticed this wheatear further along on the wall. It didn't mind us too much and allowed us to get pretty close. Then it would float down the other side of the wall when pup got too near. I could never spot it though, they are great at camouflaging themselves! When I so much as glanced over the wall, Bracken had immediately jumped up onto it again. He is going to be great at agility when he is old enough to go to classes!
I added to my earlier swallow photo, to complete my trio! The holy trinity. Swallow, swift and housemartin! I love these birds!!

That rounds up a pretty awesome day. If the weather would like to start acting more like May than October that would be great! Prime example of the wintry weather was yesterday when my Dad and I got caught in a hailstorm whilst down at Oare Marshes!
Thanks for reading and pop back soon to see some photos of the walk, some rain drops and the garden in a brief spell of sunshine :)
