A week away with little birding

Herring gull flying over ships and wind turbines in Margate, UK - A week away with little birding
A week away with little birding

Just a quick post, from well off the patch. I have recently returned from a trip to Kent (Margate to be precise – we go there quite regularly). 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).

Not much to say but I hope you like the photos, they aren’t all birds, some are some nice landscapes.

  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.
