Burnham on Sea

While I’m in the creative mood, here are a few sunset pictures from our new home towns wild seawall. And a few odd shots from around the seaside part of town. We live literally five minutes from the mouth of the River Brue, which itself then feeds into the mouth of the River Parrett http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Brue,  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/River_Parrett which discharges into Bridgwater Bay and the Bristol channel. The intermediate strip of land is Stert Island http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bridgwater_Bay

Towards Stert Island

Steep Holm (right of it Flat Holm)

Towards the Quantocks


  1. Hell's bells - you did well to get a shot of a Kingfisher...

  2. Couldn't believe it especially being so close to the sea. Literally 20mtrs from the muds of low tide. The actual fresh water part of the river is half a mile back behind a sluice, and the pools it was fishing were once little clay digs.
