Poppies

The poppies were bobbing in the breeze at Greatham Creek

There is work going on in the area.

Across the road lies the Teesmouth National Nature Reserve and Seal Sands.

The Harbour Seals lie on the mud at low tide.

Waders cross the mudflats in search of food.

The last video also shows Redshank.

As the tide begins to turn, Cormorants dry themselves on the waters edge.

Little Egrets were also hunting on the waters edge

and on Greatham Creek.
