4th May 2019 – Goldcliff Lagoons, Newport Wetlands

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There was a sharp wind but it remained sunny for our visit to Goldcliff Lagoons on Newport Wetlands on the other side of the Severn Estuary from Bristol. The highlight of the visit were the avocets but there were also lots of Greylag and Canada geese with their goslings. There was a report of a glossy ibis but we didn’t see it. I took lots of photos but only ended up editing a few as most of the birds were too far away for my lens.
