Four Herring Gulls   7 comments

The RSPB website describes the Herring Gull as ‘large noisy gulls’ and mentions twice that they can be found near to rubbish tips. If the RSPB struggles to find something nice to say about them you know that it’s not the most loved of birds. Interestingly it says their numbers have declined over the past 25 years, yet there are still 750,000 of them in the UK during the winter. I wouldn’t be surprised if most of them are in Hastings.

Groynes   3 comments

The sun was beginning to set when these were taken, bringing out the lovely colour of the wet wood and iron work of the groynes at Glyne Gap. Groynes are designed to slow down the relentless action of longshore drift. To be instantly taken back to your GCSE Geography courses this short YouTube clip provides an excellent explanation of what longshore drift is. More interesting than the clip is the comments left by viewers. I never knew the subject could create such emotion.

I’ve spent quite a bit of time trying to think of something to say about this picture, but cant come up with anything. I like the picture, but can’t say why.
