We took a trip down to Hill Head to have a look around Rosemary’s parents’ old retirement stomping ground. We watched the Oystercatchers, Turnstones and gulls feeding at low tide. Interesting watching the gulls dropping shellfish onto the stones in the hope they would break open. Tricky business as other birds were ready to pick up the remains.
Walked on over to the Osborne View for lunch. Ate outside in the searing heat. The place has much improved over the last few years.
Next we walked around the Titchfield Haven Nature Reserve, owned by Hampshire County Council. We walked the east side visiting all the hides. These are all relatively new, built in the last 10 years. Herons and duck were on display. There was excitement in the last hide when long yellow tailed tits or something like that were spotted.
Finally tea at the Haven cafe, and a final view of a hovercraft being tested.
