I Promote Margate Ramsgateand Broadstairs towns of The Isle of Thanet plus it's wonderful sandy beaches and bays. I have a theory you can always count ten ships off the coast of Margate and Cliftonville. I test this theory as often as possible.

Jay covered in ants
I was on holiday this week and saw a Jay acting strangely. I took several photos and it wasn't until I got home and put the pictures on the computer could I see it was covered in ants. I have never seen this behaviour before but he was actively encouraging the ants onto his feathers and didnt mind me being so close I was about six to eight feet away. I assume this is done to get the ants to clear him of parrisites if you have any knowledge of this please comment.
