13th March 2018 – Severn Estuary

Quite out of the blue a stunning day with blue skies throughout and some warmth in the sun.

I spent a wonderful morning on the Severn Estuary meeting lots of interesting people and seeing lots of birds: I started at Aust Warth where I had great views of a short-eared owl and a kestrel; I then moved on to Northwick Warth where, for me, the bird of most interest was a golden plover.

On Pilning Wetlands I could make out Canada geese, mute swans, shovelers, tufted ducks, a little grebe, lapwings, a grey heron, a little egret and plenty I couldn’t make out.

I was about to leave, as it was getting a little fresh in the wind, when I realised the tide had come in enough to make the estuary quite interesting with shelduck, wigeon, dunlin, turnstone, redshank, and black-headed gulls.
