tollesbury low tideI walked out into the creeks near Tollesbury harbour to try and capture the rather bleak, windy outlook at Easter time this year. The paper was an off-white colour, so a few touches of white crayon brought out the water in the creek at low tide quite well.

There were several bar-tailed godwits pecking away in the mud as well. A ver y distinctive bird.
