This is the view we had yesterday from the South Devon Coast Path near Bantham on an unseasonably mild and sunny Christmas Day. The River Avon meets the sea here creating one of South Devon’s best surfing beaches. If you look carefully you can see many surfers enjoying a Christmas Day wave. The other landmark here is Burgh Island with its art deco hotel sitting like a white wedding cake on a plate.
The cliffs were decorated with a few struggling sea pinks and irregular splashes of yellow gorse. Here and there we saw stonechats flying from bush to bush, their russet waistcoats glowing in the sunshine. On the beaches, small flocks of rock pipits moved among the seaweed sometimes accompanied by pied wagtails.
Here are two images from our walk:
