Hamble point.

A quick stop at Hamble Point at the mouth of Southampton Water where it meets the Solent.

The gorse is now fully out in flowers and the smell of the flowers fills the air with their strong scent which is like the smell of coconut.

Greenfinches were a common sight when I was a child, especially on the bird table. I rarely see them today however, I spotted a pair feeding around the gorse flowers. (The male is darker in colour and is in the pictures I have posted 1st).

Another nice spot in the gorse was a small flock of long-tailed tits.

  1. I love that sailboat – looks like a nice adventure. I would love to smell those flowers. Have never smelled flowers that smell like coconut. It is sad to see that a lot of our bird species are dwindling in number.
