A crabby sort of a day

We went crabbing this morning and caught loads. They get one sniff of some bacon and all come scurrying out of the seaweed. We let them all go, but we were definitely in the mood for shellfish for lunch!

We walked along the pier to the lifeboat station and saw a big jellyfish swimming around below us. It was very large, so I think it may have been a Barrel Jellyfish.

There were also some cormorants drying their wings in the breeze - they remind me of pterodactyls!

It was very hot and sunny in the afternoon, so we had a look around the nature reserve. There were lots of butterflies around, including common blues, commas and peacocks. Bug Mad Girl had her eagle eyes on the lookout again and she spotted a cocoon in the reeds.

We saw several rooks sitting in the sun with their mouths wide open. I assume they were trying to keep cool. You'd think they would just sit in the shade if they were hot!

Then we saw this lovely heron practicing it's ballet moves!
