|In a "Where's Waldo?" type affair, can you spot the deer and three galliformes in this photo?|
We're revisiting the embankment behind Hexenhäusli Device as, since the last time it featured here, I managed to snap some of its visitors and passers through.
Above and to the right, from 1st May, are embankment regulars: a muntjac deer, the big, bronze cock pheasant, and the pair of partridges (of the red-legged variety).
From the 30th April (below) is a juvenile sparrowhawk that I just managed to snap as it took off from its perch.
Then, just now as I was basking in the morning sun on the paysho, I noticed this adult roe deer lurking behind the big sycamore. With stealth and grace (i.e. I managed not to blunder into the garden furniture or pots as I crept backwards towards the house), I retreated indoors to grab Camera and took these photos from the living room.

|"Ah. That's better."|
|"Yes, I can see you with your telephoto lens out!"|
|"Get it while its good, as I'm off."|
|"Oh, go on, then. One last snap."|
And now, as we haven't been for quite some time, back to the beach. These are from my government mandated daily exercise on 26th April - a walk along the beach (with paddling!) from Overstrand to Sidestrand and back. The photos were taken beyond the End-of-the-Line on Sidestrand Beach. As you can see, it was quite difficult to adhere to the two metre social distancing rule...
One day, far, far in the future, these clay formations might end up as slate:
