Humphrey Head

And here’s Humphrey …….. well actually a male Slow-worm on the campsite just before we left for Humphrey Head.

Really impressed with Humphrey Head, although a relatively small area of limestone jutting out into the Kent Estuary on an incoming tide there was plenty of birdlife. In particular on the saltmarsh and in the various channels. With the amount of birdlife the resident Peregrines were putting on an excellent display, likewise the Kestrels picking off the voles fleeing from the oncoming tide.

Another fly past ………

Superb wind-sculpted Hawthorn, reminiscent of Bonsai.

Sorbus lancastriensis – the mighty Lancastrian Mountain Ash

Growing to a mighty – ahem, 6m high and found only in the limestone woodlands of Morecambe Bay. Well hardy and can handle plenty of rain.
