Hi All Followers of this page. As you can see I have refreshed the set up, I hope that you like it. There is also a new link on the right hand side of the page, please check it out.

Horrid Hill

Horrid Hill is part of the Riverside Country Park, it is a piece of land that juts out from the main riverbank.

Most of the land on each side is flooded at high water but you can still walk out to the point where there is a viewing point. and a board that tell what birds you can see from there.

Looks better in really life
There are lots of Gull and if you are wondering what has happened to all of the birds, well they are here. I saw one of the biggest flock of Starling at the point. There must have been over a hundred birds

Flock of Starlings
Some of them are even in focus.

They were sitting in the trees or standing on the seaweed.

There were dozens around this bird.

While at the point I spotted a Little Egret, he was a fare way off but it was worth a shot.

Little Egret 
The Little Egret was with a few Oyster Catchers but he then flew off.

What a graceful looking bird in flight

He was the only one as the rest were Gulls. but when gliding they to look as if they could stay up forever.

Here is a selection, I hope you like them
