BIRD LIFE AS THE HARBOUR EBBS & FLOODS

Have you ever parked at the end of Abraham's Bosom or at the end of the Crocq and looked down at the harbour bed on a rising or falling tide as the harbour floods or ebbs. You haven't ! Then you have missed the abundance of bird life that feeds in the centre gully both on a falling and rising tide.

Unfortunately if a Marina is built yet another habitat will be taken from the environment.
Natural Guernsey will become unnatural! Some photos of the birds pictured below have been taken whilst feeding on the Harbour bed. More and better pictures I hope will follow as they become available.

The White Egret. This bird can now be seen feeding up as far as the Crocq.
