5th October 2016 – Severn Estuary

A fabulous morning’s birding at New Passage/Northwick and then back to Severn Beach whilst waiting for my car to be serviced at Cribbs Causeway. Glorious sunshine giving ample opportunities to take photos and enjoy the 5 mile walk; full compensation for the stressful hour-long journey (mainly caused by the works for MetroBus).

The stars of the morning were 4 Ruff who posed for my photos (I’m not the first photographer they have encountered). Don’t know that I can identify all the birds but plenty of ducks and waders, Wheatear, Pied Wagtail, Meadow Pipit, Starlings, 100+ Turnstones mingled with Ringed Plover. Also saw a Hobby.
