Over the last few weeks I have received reports from group members of the different birds to be seen from Gravesend Promenade and the park. Sally and I have not been able to get there for several weeks but we finally made it yesterday. One avocet, 30+ redshanks, 8 black-tailed godwits, 10+ teal and one cormorant. Plus all of the regulars – 36 mute swan, 4 mallard, herring gulls, common gulls and my favourites , black-headed gulls. One little grebe was on the lake along with 9+moorhens. We missed seeing the turnstones, the kingfisher and the reported bar-tailed godwit!
I am sure that they would have turned up eventually but I was forced to go shopping! Have a look yourself. Get the tide right and take binoculars for the waders.
Thanks to those who have reported their sightings and to Sally for the photograph.
