31st July 2016 Oldbury-on Severn


A pleasant day for a walk along the Severn Estuary from Oldbury-on-Severn. Very grey to start but brightened up and quite warm by the time we made our way back to The Anchor.

Coffee in the lovely Community Shop and Café before we started and a pint of Bass in the Anchor at the end – nice way to celebrate a birthday.

A Kestrel in the distance was the first sighting.


Then a Curlew and a few Oystercatchers on the Estuary.



And then we turned inland and did a circuit of the lagoons near to the Power Station where we saw a Tufted Duck and chicks, Moorhen and Coot on the small lagoon and a Little Egret fly over. A good number of butterflies too.


Back at The Anchor I was trying to capture Beautiful Demoiselle in flight (again) when a Grey Wagtail came and posed in the stream.
