Monday evening was again beautiful and off we went in the car, this time in the opposite direction, through Mablethorpe and then Sutton On Sea , until we got to the golf course. We parked in the car park and climbed the steps and there was the beach, and once again the tide was in. There were a few more people about this time and several had dogs which were off the lead and they came over to meet me, it can be a bit daunting when 2 labradors come bouncing over to a small dog, I do wish their owners would take that into consideration, they then wonder why the smaller dog yaps at them!! I am not allowed off my lead when any other dogs are around as I am not trained to come back when called and my mums don't think it is right for me to go and interfere with other dogs on leads and they are also worried I may get hurt, compared to most on the beach I am only small!! Anyway, enough of the chatter, I am sure it is the pictures you have come to see!
Grandad visited yesterday, after lunch we went for a walk at the nature reserve at Donna Nook. This is such a strange place, it is owned by the Ministry of Defence but managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, it is still used as a bombing target range!! You can't go in there when the red flags are flying!
It is a very popular place for bird watchers, the reserve is rich in bird life. In summer breeding birds of the dunes include red-legged partridge, dunnock, whitethroat, linnet, skylark, yellowhammer and tree sparrow. The mudflats provide a winter home for substantial numbers of brent geese, shelduck, twite, lapland bunting, shore lark, large flocks of knot and dunlin and a wide variety of other wading birds. Donna Nook has one of the largest and most accessible breeding colonies of grey seals in the UK. Pretty knowlegable little pug aren't I?
Here we are after we have just left the car park;
Believe it or not the sea is over here somewhere!
Here I am investigating;
Just having a quick shake, this sand gets everywhere!
Pugsley is also interested in local wildlife, he has been walking in Whitwell Woods this morning, here is one picture of him there, and there are more if you go here: http://www.bull-terriers.co.uk/pugs/pugsley2.htm
