I've just edited this post following a comment that I won't publish. I was up early on Sunday morning, before sunrise, but there's not a lot of point in taking pictures in the dark so off I went home for a Sunday breakfast and to get the energy and motivation for a pedal on the Long Haul Trucker.
Once the sun had been so decent as to get high enough above the horizon to provide some pictures I headed west with the morning light to catch the Winterfield Golf Club whilst the first dark banks of heavy cloud started to gather to the west.
The LHT with sun picking out Belhaven Bay. This photo has come out noisy and over saturated but that's kind of what the light looked like this morning so I've left it in for you to make your own judgment.
Down to West Barns with the most minimal of effort on the pedals and I was so lucky to catch this pick of a Little Egret. These bird are normally only seen on in the south of England during the winter and are rare in these climes. I had heard it was about over the last year and MTB Stravaiger Barry had caught a pic in his blog recently. I was still well chuffed to get this pic as it hunted little fish.
You can still see this little ones withered umbilicus. He's only seen a couple of days and was full of the excitement being young.
Ginger ears, stiff legs and wrinkly skin. Ahh...
Then as the sky grew more overcast, I pedaled on and found some shelter from the wind. Although I've been experimenting with cold brew during the week, It was a simple hot flask of freshly pressed coffee for breakfast.
