The salt marsh, behind the dunes at Belhaven Beach, has also got glorious patches of flowers in bloom. Birdsfoot trefoil - or known to me as bacon and eggs when I was a child,
and hidden in dunes, amongst the marram grass, Dactylorhiza purpurella, the northern marsh orchid.
The surf was up! No sign of any surfers though, apart from one abandoned board on the wet sand. The evenings are still getting longer, and on a fine day the light will be good until after 10 o'clock, so I think there will be some keen water babies heading for the beach tonight, with a disposable barbecue tucked under one arm, and the surf board under the other!
Over the roar of the waves, I could still hear the lark, singing high above the dunes, enjoying the glorious sunshine and clear blue skies.
