Hornsea Mere

Sunday 7th September
 A day out to the East coast of Yorkshire to visit my granddad & so on the way we decided
 to call in at Hornsea Mere. It was a bright morning with a temperature of 14°C on our arrival,
when we parked up there were hundreds of birds.There were c100 Mute Swans, not often you
see so many together along with c250 Canadas not to mention Greylags & Mallards.Coots,
Tufted Ducks & Great Crested Grebes were on the lake.It was also good to see a Black Swan,
but the stars here were the Little Gulls a couple were on the jetty & some were out on the water.
Cormorants flew overhead then with the mallards at the edge of the water there was another
surprise in the form of a Godwit.
