Mimsmere has a wide variety of habitats. The sand cliffs here are the perfect place for sand martins and their burrows. There were plenty of the birds about but I had no chance of catching them on camera.

Catching Molly and Nuala at the right time is just as difficult. Molly was looking at the camera - honest.
Here Molly was supposed to be in mid jump - whoops - but there's Nuala!
Photographing birds presents its own problems. These were all taken with the telephoto close to maximum magnification.

I really should have taken a snap of some of the other twitchers and their cameras, where their telephoto lens were many times the size of the cameras themselves.
Eventually, I got some reasonable photos of Molly and Nuala.
