A Filey summer evening

A quick one with a few choice shots from this evening. It's been a good day - the culmination of three days straight out on the boat guiding our Seabird and Whale Trips (more on those here tomorrow), back in time for a swim in the bay with the Mrs, and then a nip around the local area here in Filey: Hirundines trickling through along the cliff top, neon juvenile Willow Warblers brightening up Top Scrub, a Barn Owl hunting close and unfazed, and a lovely sundown at the Dams, where Wood Sandpiper, three Green Sandpipers, five Snipe and a Black-tailed Godwit were enjoying the mud, many more hirundines were swirling in to roost, and more Willow Warblers buzzed in the last of the sunshine.
