Bridlington Visitor

25 Feb

Here’s something a little different; a knot on Bridlington’s north beach. There’s some old tale about these birds being named after King Canute who, as you know, tried to stop the tide coming in and got his feet wet for his troubles or maybe he was named after the birds. I don’t know, it doesn’t matter all that much. These birds don’t breed in this country but thousands fly in for the worms and such like on our shores every Winter.
