Lunching in the Teign

Teignmouth harbour on a summer afternoon in June (the first)

A Greater Black Backed Gull is crunching on crab.
A Starling is furtling frantically under the seaweed.
(Sparrows are busybodying in)

A crow jumps in to finish off the Gulls crab leftover.

Lunching in the Teign. Easy pickings and peckings.

(you try to ignore that stupidly misplaced plastic bottle)

At one time this big bird of a boat was somebodys ideal home in an iydllic location.

They’d sit out there on the deck watching the trains rattle by, listening to the burbling of the curlews and godwits, while sipping some sparkling bubbly refreshment.

But whoever these somebodys were they’ve long gone now.

Left their Wild Swan behind.

Abandoned it to the river and the tides.
