⛅️ 💨 21C Thursday 21st June 2018 ~ After an overnight stay at Bempton on Wednesday night, I drove the 90-minutes or so down to Kilnsea Wetlands Nature Reserve and Spurn. This was my first visit to the area since the December 2013 Storm surge. The sea rose that night by 2 meters on top of a high tide, washing the temporary road away! The natural event resulted in Spurn being cut off from the rest of Holderness and on certain high tides it is now the Uk's newest tidal Island.

The primary reason for today's visit ~ To see first hand the change in geography at Spurn and visit the Little Tern colony at Beacon Ponds.
My first stop was at Kilnsea Wetlands Nature Reserve and after parking up, I made my way around to the hide. Although It was a pretty windy day and of course the longest day too it was what I would class as a typical English summers day.
