Croissant to go !

The best laid plans. The croissants didn't work out as the local bakery had none.

 A French stick was a surreal substitute especially when you walk across this landscape carrying a net in one hand and a French loaf in another, but hey........

I was tempted to have my usual dip but summer is over and  the sea is cooling down. It was good to just enjoy the day, move the nets to another location and catch up with the dotterels, oystercatcher and pied stilt along the Mangawhai coastline.                                                        

 We think these are weasel prints in the sand which is a worry for a new seasons nesting birds so a trap will have to be placed nearby.
