5th March 2019 – New Passage, Severn Estuary

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Following the incredibly (unseasonable) warm spell last week we were blasted by Storm Freya over the weekend. I thought I was being rather brave this morning going down to New Passage on the Severn Estuary (between the two Severn Bridges) but in fact it was not too cold or blustery and I had an enjoyable hour or two watching lots of waders feeding and flying around as the time ebbed.
