A “must have” for relaxing on the marsh.

Sunrise: 05.59 Sunset: 08.18

When spending serious time on the marsh, it helps having a few useful luxuries to ease the day.

My A-frame lounger is one such luxury that might not look very comfortable at first glance, but believe me it is! It’s all too easy to fall asleep on this lounger – I have done, a few times. In answer to recent emails on this subject, the image should make clear what an A-frame chair/lounger is.

The spade I acquired from a leprechaun digging holes on the marsh; he was dressed head to toe in green, with buckles on his hat, belt and shoes. He sported a red beard and everything. When he caught sight of me he picked up his strange-looking bucket, held it tight to his chest, and did a runner. I shouted after him that he had forgotten his spade, he laughed and shouted back over his shoulder that he had his crock, so I was more than welcome to keep his spade. It is quite a small spade and an excellent and very handy marsh tool.

Stay away from my eggs, mister, or I will see you off!

I’m tripping over ground nests, eggs, goslings and ducklings on the marsh today, walking on eggs shells left by predators.

I said stay away from my eggs, mister! I won’t tell you again! Here comes my mate, he’ll sort you out!
