KEEN birdwatchers got down with nature on Southsea seafront yesterday with their binoculars.
They spotted black-headed gulls and common terns feeding on mackerel in the water and saw lots of other birds with the assistance of members of the RSPB.
Around 150 people turned up to learn about the wildlife on the beach and the RSPB had binoculars and telescopes to help the public to spot the birdlife.
Pete Harrison, from the RSPB, said: ‘It was great to get to speak to so many people on the seafront, and point out things to them the they probably wouldn’t notice otherwise.
‘There is much more to see at the beach than just seagulls and I want to show people how to spot that.’
Why not take a trip down there and count how many birds you can see. Can you name them all?
