Caravaning in April by the Banks not far from Southport is full of delightful surprises. The site we chose is well looked after, dry grass, plenty of space, amazing view over sea marshes and beautiful sunsets. Tonight we finally tasted the free range eggs collected daily. Every morning we are greeted by noisy flocks of geese flying over our heads. Right in front of us, shell ducks are waking up alongside a dozen of sturdy rams, ewes and vivacious lambs.
