We search for fossils on the clay at the base of the cliffs, and for a long while we find nothing. Then we reach an area of slate grey clay and find a cluster of belemnites, some of them the smallest I've seen. Later we find another good patch and a large fragment of an ammonite.
We walk until the base of the chalk cliffs and then turn round. A young seal is on the edge of the rising tide, trying not to get splashed by the waves, oblivious to us. It looks healthy, so we leave it alone.
By the caravan park, we watch a pair of wagtails courting, the female not too welcoming to the male's courtship dance.
