Had a nice weekend away in the kent, East Sussex area. First stop was a visit to the Harewood Estate in Surrey to see the springs flowers in the glorious weather first stoped off in the alps garden with some great looking flowers before walking in the oak woodland with the Daffodils in full flow with the primroses and the sounds of the Great Spotted Woodpecks and Chiff-chaffs a great supporting act.
Next visit was to Bodium Castle in East Sussex a traditional medival castle with a moat and all and a lovely environment to just walk around and get the fell for it must have been like.
Last stop of the day was a visit to Rye Harbour lovely looking site and still quite a few waders around with Avocet, Curlew, Black-tailed Godwit, Redshank and Shelduck out on the harbout and mudflats. Surprised to see quite a few winter waterfowl still around with Brent Geese and Teal still around. Though looked liked the Black-headed gulls were ready to breed with over a thousand on the two inland lagoons. A very lovely place to walk with all the miltary history around.
