A nice day,temperate,hazy sun,a strong wind from the south.
We parked at Muswell manor and walked across the dykes to Harty and through the farm to the sea wall.
Following the wall,we stopped briefly to chat to a couple of birders,telling them of the Marsh Harriers,Curlews and Lapwings etc that we had seen
At the end of the wall,we turned towards Shell ness beach and ,when there ,sat down to have our coffee and take some pictures.The beach takes its name from the masses of sea shells piled up on the beach.The tide was coming in and we watched the thousands of sea birds flying past.
Back along the beach,past the naturist beach to the car.
We left the Isle of Sheppey via the old lift bridge which was raised.
About 7 or 8 miles .
