Cee Neuner’s challenge this week for the CMMC (Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge) is for a photo of something with the letter M twice in the word. I hadn’t thought of anything more exciting than a finger post giving directions to a swimming pool, but the post I have scheduled for Friday this week gave me another idea.
I have to apologise for my word having an extra M!
This train in commemorative livery will appear with a steam train in my next post. The livery (paintwork) is 3 years old as it commemorates an event in 1918.
Work is underway on the England Coast Path – a long-distance footpath. New finger-posts have been installed recently. This one is at a point where the path is diverted inland to avoid crumbling cliffs.
After some heavy rain and gales the becks were flowing fast. One attracted a heron, which we noticed on three consecutive days. I have not yet discovered whether there is a zoom facility on my new phone’s camera, but I have cropped some photos to enlarge the heron. There were also three mallard drakes and a duck as well as a smaller shore bird we failed to identify. The grey wagtail I noticed eluded the camera!
We were very surprised one day as we went to look at another very full and fast-flowing beck. A small mammal was using a pipe as a bridge. From its size and the shape of its tail, we are hopeful that it was a red squirrel. They have been seen in some large gardens in this village, so that is not impossible. It vanished far too quickly for a photo!
