Everyday Nature Southend

click on 'local wildlife' for shore birds and more.

Winter is a good time to embark on the Everyday Nature project. Here in Southend we have our waterfront visitors, shore birds of many sorts, as well as our non seasonal residents. The challenge is to celebrate the ordinary, the taken for granted and the sometimes despised. Along the way we can enjoy the views, be thankful for our spaces and still get a little bit excited to see the less frequently observed wildlife. They all have their stories and quite a bit of personality once you get to know them...
