Sea Food Bisque!

Out in the south east teaching adults wilderness living skills. Today they were honing their wild cooking and having made a superb shelter and kept the fire going - no easy task in these damp conditions the skill of wilderness cuisine came into play. Plenty of birds to keep us occupied - Oystercatchers, Heron, Gannets and gulls and early this morning I watched a Treecreeper just at head height on a Beech tree finding breakfast too. With Mussels , Cockles and Limpets prepared on a bed of Sea Lettuce and Sorrel it was quite a feast. To finish a cup of Nettle tea in the warming sunshine.
