It was a disappointing start to our trip to Slimbridge as, although a bright day was forecast, the skies were very grey and the light was very poor for photography. I was hoping to see a wood sandpiper but I only saw a green sandpiper.
From the Holden hide we could see a peregrine on the edge of the estuary but it was too distant for a photo.
Just as we had given up and were heading off for some lunch we made one last stop and were treated to a wonderful display by a male kingfisher. Lunch was most enjoyable after that.
