28th March 2017 – Chew Valley & Blagdon

Although there was bright sunshine as I drove through Bristol as soon as I arrived in the Chew Valley it was misty and murky and rather mystical.

At Herons Green I saw a flock 30 or more Sand Martin chasing the masses of flies but they soon disappeared. There were plenty of  Tufted Ducks, Pied Wagtail and Chaffinch and a few distant Great Crested Grebe but not much else.

From Moreton hide I could see Golden Eye, Shelduck  and some very distant Scaup.

At Herriotts Bridge there were some more Golden Eye amongst the Tufted Ducks.

The sun was coming through at Blagdon Lake but all I could see were Coots close up and two Buzzards overhead.
