With the sun shining the Blowmonkey clan headed to Westcliffe Sea front for a stroll in the last afternoon sunshine on Sunday. The only Rossi I had managed to get good views of was of the mint choc chip variety. Having already seen Rossi the Ring Billed Gull twice this year not much time was spent trying to locate the yankee bird to be fair. A lovely slow walk along the front was rounded of nicely with cod, chips and mushy peas. Superb.
It's been a long cold winter but at last Spring is in the air, Wheatears and LRPs are arriving, and the first returning Osprey appear to have hit the southern counties of England. So lads put the thermals away and dust off your shorts, let the tick fest commence!
