White Cliffs of Dover

I'm not going to waffle on too much in this post as the photos say it all. Lori, Nolan and I decided on a road trip and though Stonehenge was a great contender, we all opted for the White Cliffs of Dover. Though I have seen them from the ferry on a few occasions, I had never walked over them. Vera Lynn.

We arrived in Dover at about 8:30am; two hour drive from Woking. After locating the visitor centre and the start of our trail, we back tracked to Dover town for a nice a English breakfast before starting our hike. The weather forecast was good but the morning was a little foggy, so we killed some time checking out the fields along the way. Here we found a few good birds including big flocks of Goldfinch, Siskin and Linnet, Red-legged Partridge, Golden Plover, Skylark, Kestrel and a Goshawk!

Once the weather improved we started our walk, making our way down the trails to the South Foreland Lighthouse. En-route we noticed a few good birds including Herring Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Wheatear, Yellowhammer, Pied Wagtail and Common Tern.
