Riverside

Hello all, yesterday I took a trip back to Riverside C.P. as I had not been out for a while. It was a bit cold but quite bright with a little sun.
I started at Motney Hill and walked halfway to Bloors. The tide was up so not much doing so I decided to drive up to the main entrance. On the way back to the car i spotted what I thought were Gulls frying around. As I got closer I manage to frame them and found that it was a colony of Lapwings. I manage a few pictures but at that time they were too far away.


As I walked donw the path and got level with them they came into focus.

Lapwings
  
Quite a large colony
When I got home I found these on a picture

Little Egrets
 Sorry about the focus but I was focusing on the Lapwings at the time and was not really taking any notice of them.


In the bay


  I then headed off to the main part of the park. Where I found A friend of mine with the RSPB stand showing anybody who would listen about the birds and showing them how to use a telescope.  I left him to it and wandered off.

Hear I come

I then set off for the pond which has not had much in it this year.

Moorhen
 He was hiding from me.

Of course you can't visit Riverside without taking a shot of that lovely PS and the clouds

Kingsnorth PS soon to be gone

Well that was it for Riverside, but when I got up this morning this next two greeted me.
