Saignie Bay

Walked around the base of the Autelets to get a better look at the Guillemots while the morning sun was on the rock.  Found a nice big, flat boulder and set up my scope on the tripod and observed the birds for an hour before the tide meant a hasty return back through the arch to Port du Moulin.  Lovely bright orange/red seaweed in the pools (Delesseria sanguinea), whose fronds resemble leaves in that they have a distinct midrib and veins.  Also a few lovely examples of the Strawberry anemone, which is a strikingly beautiful species of large anemone found only in the English Channel and on the South coast of Britain.
