Clahane evening -Hightide and flies

The Flies
Redshank covered in flies
 Billions of flies were pushed up onto the sea walls at Clahane ,producing food for a variety of birds on land and in the sea, there must have been an abundance of feeding  fish as well to attract a Bottlenose Dolphin.

A large flock of Herring Gull and Kittiwake had come into the cove for the feeding and  50 Pied Wagtail were along side the road.

 The wading bird and the birds that roost on the shoreline here had lost there place due to the hightide, pushing them up close the road , they searched for roosting areas late into the evening,
