Only four of us this week met by the Kingsferry crossing over the river Swale . It was cold very overcast and a threat of rain . We had planned to walk through the Elmley Nature Reserve and make a circular route back along the river Swale but soon after setting off we met the nature reserves warden who very politely asked if we would mind not walking through the reserve due to the number of nesting waders that could be disturbed by us walkers . As he was so friendly we retraced our steps then followed the path that took us past the bridges then followed the river Swale so far then simply turned around and once again retraced our steps by which time the sun had got its hat on and was just great to be out and about . Lots of bird life including at least 6 Avocets , 1 Marsh Harrier and loads of waders Sorry for  taking too many photos
Part of the marsh lands at start of walk 

Kingsferry bridges you can see how misty and cloudy it was at the start

Time for a break 

Recycling Centre 

It was at this point we turned around and retraced our steps 

This does show how cloudy it was 

with the tide approaching high tide the river traffic appeared

this shows the clouds breaking up and how far the water had come in since we started

due to a lack of people available this week we met up with our member from Broadstairs who is still recovering from a major operation and  just wanted a breath of fresh air . With this in mind a total of four of us met at the sea front in Tankerton. . We then just did a very slow gentle stroll along the front to Whitstable where we had a coffee and nice sit down . As this was not a real walk in distance sense the photos are really only me playing with the camera not really recording the route Only 3 miles
