Not long after Racer and Minnie arrived, I was looking after a little cat who lives right on the stretch of river where I like to go the most. So, after visiting her one morning, I took the girlettes for their first mudlarking trip. Minnie left her shoes at home so she wouldn't lose them.
Looking down, an important skill in mudlarking.
Herons are pretty common, and for such a large and impressive bird I am grateful for that. There are also coots and moorhens in the water, ducks and gulls. There are always crows on the foreshore, eating the tasty worms in the mud I presume. Not sure if it is a gull or a tern.
