My son has been sick for the past week with a cold but today he looked a tad perkier.He suggested a trip up to the Humber bridge to walk the mutt and get some fresh air.

He was the official photographer so we sorted out supplies for this major expedition;water and bowl for dog,water for ourselves,and decided on chips for lunch after the walk.
Sunshine,fresh air and friendly people as we walked a few miles and the dog ran several more off the lead.Lots of butterflies,mainly small whites and one small tortoiseshell.Lots of buzzing insects and some geese plus one magpie.There were some small white birds out on the waters edge and we could see one chap photographing them.We decided to not disturb him given we had a daft dog in tow.
All in all a lovely few hours well spent and hopefully the sun,air and exercise has made an improvement in my son's health.His 40 a day cough may now go more quickly.
We made it back in time as the rain bucketed down when we reached home.

Oh, and the chips went down a treat as well with Dandelion and Burdock, the '97 I think it was.

That's one of my favourite places for going and clearing my head. Glad you saw the stilts even if distantly.

I think the last dandelion & burdoch I had was the '79 vintage x

Thank you Amber and welcome.
Cherrypie, Thankyou for identifying the distant white birds.The dog stopped us from going any closer.My son pointed out,several times I might add,that we need a new camera...He's right,we do.
I do so like dandelion & burdock.
