Black Tailed Godwit Warsash

If you enjoy watching or photographing Waders, Geese and most other Birds then Warsash / Hook-In-Warsash are certainly two great places to visit. Being only a short drive from my daughter’s house in Netley, I always find time to pop over there for a few hours, never disappoints. Black Tailed Godwit If the tide is […]

Conningbrook main lake in Winter

Meadow Pipit at Dungeness

I arrived at RSPB Dungeness at 0945., clear, sunny, no wind and zero degrees. Earler I had ensured I had ample clothing; on top I had 2 T-Shirts, 2 Jumpers, a Shirt and my thick 100% Wool Nepalese Jacket. After about 200 meters, I was too hot ! Meadow Pipit I started off with a […]
