The bridge onto the island
Over the bridge and looking back
Looking back to our friends home at the top of the cliff
We are well into our walk now and looking out over the Thames and the tide is out. See the lone daffodills in the foreground. In these marshes one can hear the Godwits calling.
The ducks and Moorhens love this bit and I love the isolation
We are looking back now as we get ready to walk the other half of the island. This previous bit is very much a nature reserve and the next part of the walk is a wildfowl sanctuary.
Sense the quietness and emptyness. The tide is still out but the seagulls are awaiting it's return so they can feast on the tiny fish that come in with the tide.
Looking out towards Benfleet Creek from the Hide. Trust me there are many birds wading around and chirping away.
Looking out towards the ruins of Hadleigh Castle
A way of the island on foot providing the tide is out
We have finished our walk now. Could have shown you many more pictures but this was just a taste. We walked again on the mainland at the end of the day and snapped some beautiful skies.
Don't we have an awesome Creator. These 3 photographs were taken in the same place all within 30 minutes.
