Oh, but these are just so delightful!! Wonderful action matched by wonderful titles. My vote has to be shared between each and every one of these though if I may whisper it softly, something ultra special about that final amazing image!

high tides are latter & higher, Sun. the 25th to Fri the 30th . 4.20pm to7.58pm and are between 6.7metres & 7.4metres. Hope the weather is kind to you.
Rob.

A wonderful set of action shots, you've timed these to perfection. These elegant birds are much more enjoyable to view than Michael Flatley!
