JOTTINGS FROM NA TURE. DECEMBER igth, igio. Latge volumes of water were flung upon the rocks, and the spray-showers, shooting up into the air, were blown landward. The seething billows roared continuously, and the gruff moan of the wind, as it swept convul- sively along the cliff-face, harmonised with the tumult of the sea. In the distance the receding tide, exposing the large banks of sand, uncovered the feeding grounds of the waders and gulls, and if the imperfect light it was just possible to see the black and white plumage of the oyster-catchers ts they flew past, and at intervals we caught the wail of curlews, and the pretty call of ringed plovers, as the birds winged their way over the sea from the places to which they resorted so soon as the inflowing tide covering the food-supplying banks, compelled them to retire. Apparently the party of 21 mallards, leisurely bobbing up and down on the waves at some distance from the foot of the cliff, were not inconvenienced by the immersions which they had involuntarily to undergo, but, as might almost be expected, none had dared to throw their heads over their shoulders. The shore-gunner's at- tempts to reach them would have proved a difficult task, but perhaps it is intended not to trouble them at all, for the flesh of the birds that have frequented the estuaries and open sea, even though it be a matter of only a few days, is not particularly palatable.
