Turnstone - The Hall of Einar - photograph (c) David Bailey (not the)

I’m lying face down in fishy bird poo again and I’m swaying gently from side to side and up and down. No, I’m not on substances, but lying on a pontoon jetty in Brixham harbour with my camera out. There are Turnstones further along, scuttling and pecking at anything which might be nutritious. They’re a bit optimistic if you ask me.

One strays in front of a red boat, which makes a cheerful artificial background for my photograph. I smile as I look at it on the back of the camera and, just for a moment, it was worth getting covered in fishy bird poo.
