27th August 2017 – Goldcliff and Newport Wetlands

We thought we would have a look on the other side of the Severn Estuary. It was a beautiful day: we started at Goldcliff saline lagoons near Newport with loads of waders (particularly ringed plovers) ; then had a picnic lunch (accompanied by long-tailed tits) on the estuary straight across from Portishead (see photo of the old Nautical School below); then walked around RSPB Newport Wetlands (where we saw very little).

Back in time to see Arsenal slaughtered by Liverpool (should have stayed out later!).
