Filey Brigg

Monday 22 July.

Had a trip to Filey Brig,a bit misty when we arrived but still warm.

Looking towards Filey
I was on the lookout for Sea birds and wild flowers that you find at the coast.
Sea Milkwort and Sea Plantain
I am fascinated by everything not just plants and animals,one of the other things (trust me there is more) is rocks! I would love to know what they are all called and how they are formed..this will have to go on my BIG LIST of things.
The sea has slowly been eroding the Brigg and has left the different rock exposed.

Rocks at shore line.
There were allot of family's walking towards the end of the Brigg and people out on the water,some were fishing.

At the end of the Brigg the rock goes out into the sea,there were quite a few sea birds flying along the coast line.


Gannets 
Could be a Godwit 
Other birds,Cormorant,Herring Gull,Tern,Guillemot and Razorbill.

We could here people shouting there were Seal's swimming at the end of the Brigg,went to take a look and one did come right in,for all of to see.

Saw some Knot's which is a first for me.

Walked up the side of the Brigg as the sun came out,it was very hot. The flowers looked lovely on the hill side there were allot of Butterflies and insects.

Horay Plantain
At the top we sat for a while.There were some lads swimming in a rock pool on the sea edge.



You could also see the birds nesting on the cliff, as well as big groups of Gulls in the sea.

Then the mist rolled in and you could not see Filey at all. Walked along the top of the brig and found some  Orchids growing in one small patch.

Photos of the Brigg from the top,you can see how it is eroding away.





There was allot of Bees and Burnet flying about.
