Paull Holme Strays

Paull Holme Strays is another place I have read about, but not visited so I decided to put that right on the way back from Spurn Point.  It was getting late in the day and the last of the sunshine made for some interesting lighting and nice reflections off the water.

There was a large area of mudflats and plenty of waders making the most of some good feeding opportunities.  The tide had left some great patterns and shapes in the mud as it had gone out.

You can just see the Humber bridge in the distance

There were lots of Redshank dotted around the flats

I particularly liked this one in silhouette and the reflections off the water makes it look like it is standing on a bed of crystals

There were quite a few Curlew flying about

and others were busy feeding

I just like the effect of the light on these teasels

In the distance you get constant reminders of your proximity to the Humber. It is incredible just how busy it is with shipping and it even looks like we still have some industry left!

An enjoyable albeit brief stop, and now it is time to head home for a bit of a food intake for myself!
