Urbaser Eco Warriors
10th March 2022
A morning on the beach. Since it was a low tide morning.
Started with the thickets and scrub near 4th Seaward Road. A hoopoe dug furiously in the soft sand, picking up breakfast. Flew as I approached, only to be chased by a crow for some reason.
A couple of Plain Prinias flitted through the Calatropis, and I watched them move up and down the branch, before zooming off to the next one. I admired their beautiful white brows, pink legs and longish tail. Among them was a Tailorbird, a little stockier, and calling loudly. Soon the Prinias went one way and the Tailorbird another way.
A Cattle Egret moved in slow motion among the grasses.
I moved on the the water front, and was horrified by what I saw.
|The sea had just deposited piles of waste - I had never seen anything like this.|
|Just piles of waste - cloth, plastic, slippers, bottles, medicine strips....a veritable tsunami of garbage.|
|And then suddenly - a broom, a pile of waste...hmm?|
|Walk a few more steps, more brooms and more signs of a clean-up, and I spied the Urbaser crew!|
|Hats off to the team who were methodically raking and collecting the waste, and removing them in large bags. We exchanged cheery hellos, and I thanked them for their efforts.|
|A Torpedo Ray(!!), Tower shells, Razor clam shells...|
|Wedge clams a plenty|
|Sunset siliqua and Towers|
|White Hammer Oyster and other unknowns|
