A week away with little birding

Just a quick post, from well off the patch, but I have recently returned from a trip to Kent (Margate to be precise) I didn't do much birding as the whole family was there so hard to get us all in a car, but here are a few few photos I did manage (Mainly Herring Gull to be fair).

And a few of the landscapes (Or mainly seascapes) I took while there:

  1. I also recently visited Margate, and live near there. If you get the chance to visit again, I would recommend visiting Hartsdown Park. It's great for green woodpeckers, jays, kestrels and home to many ring-necked parakeets.

    1. I've not visited that park before, usually pop to Dane Park or Northdown Park when we visit, also great for the parakeets :)

  2. Great photos, particularly like the first one with the boat in the background. I do love the coast, we're lucky to live on an island with so many beautiful seascapes to admire :-)
