Windy Walks

Having finally come to a decision on the identity of the diver we went for a walk around the Far Ings Nature Reserve which borders the hotel. The reserve consists of a number of flooded pits with lots of reed beds which make an ideal habitat for a number of birds. Here is the view from the first hide.

The building you can see on the very left is the hotel, so you can see why we were watching the diver from the restaurant window. You can also see just how close the hotel is to the Humber Bridge. What you can't tell is just how windy and cold it was -- one of the perils of bird watching in February.
