Exmouth's sandy beach is one of the finest in the South West and a refuge for many more wildlife species than we realise. In summer watch out for these beautiful Pied Wagtails (Motacilla alba) scurrying along the beach catching storm flies and bugs.

Taken at 10.00 on Monday 8th October in Exmouth, looking towards Exeter whilst waiting for Flying Scotsman to appear from Dawlish!

I clicked the photo and within five seconds it was gone!
