Gibraltar Point, 2 November
According to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust website, “Gibraltar Point is a dynamic stretch of unspoilt coastline running southwards from the edge of Skegness to the mouth of the Wash”. It’s actually 4 miles from the centre of Skeg. OH and I parked the Wiz about 3.5 miles away and it took us an hour to walk there. One of the first sites from just outside the Visitor Centre was the off-shore wind turbines. It was interesting for us to have a different view of them across the Old Saltmarsh.
Further to the right I noticed the breakwater.
There were lots of lagoons like this across the saltmarsh. In the very far distance is the Norfolk coast.
We heard lots of birds but didn’t see any for ages. When we did see some, we didn’t know what they were! This was the biggest flock.
We were making our way back and these two were flying in.
It’s not all birds but I’m not sure which critter dug this.
By this time, we’d had the best of the weather.
We’ll go back and try some different paths and go into a couple of the hides next time.
