I know I mentioned Shirley in my last post but if you want to have a chuckle and perhaps help a good cause pop on over and have a look.

Hi Leanne.
Thanks for the posts, I am Shirley's friend.
Your photography is beautiful.
I am clueless, LOL.
My in laws live in Seaford, I have never been, but hope to go in the future, but it will not be until my elderly girls, aka Honey and Pebbles are no longer here,( have to whisper the unbearable at this point). We have woodpeckers Robins tits and nuthatches, will try and photograph them, not so showy as your birds. Keep the beautiful pctures going.

Oh my goodness! That fish is huge! And scary! How did you come across it? I'm scared to ever venture along the linear park now!
