We spent a while watching a grey wagtail - a very cool little bird - hunting for insects in the stream bed ...
|Pardon the poor image: it moves so fast, and the light was low.|
After a look around the Heritage Centre at the lower end, we returned up the Chine, by which time the illuminations were showing up better. This is the kind of thing I admit I would have despised some decades ago. The illuminations involve not-very-subtle lighting behind the foliage and inside the cascades, making them periodically change colour. And yet the whole effect is very atmospheric; it's worth experiencing, especially toward closing time when it's getting very dark.
I just found this image in the 1866 Fenwick guide. The Chine doesn't change much.
