Northern France 8/2/12

An absolutely freezing cold day spent on the north coast of France, both east and west of Callais. The temperature must have been in the minus all day, and 5 layers was not enough. The main point of interest was meant to be around Dunkirk, but seabirds were limited, so thankfully the last stop of the day proved to be a good plan, and the Foret De Guines was well worth the extra mileage.
