9th September 2020 – Severn Estuary

We had another trip to New Passage on the Severn Estuary this morning as we like seeing the waders. We were a bit too late to see them on the shore line as the tide was too high but there were plenty of ringed plovers, dunlin and even curlew sandpipers roosting on Northwick Warth. It was very dull and not at all ideal for photographs and very difficult to pick out the curlew sandpipers. However, I managed to pick out a single curlew sandpiper on Pilning Wetlands among a group of black-headed gulls.

I did manage a little more colour in my photographs with a guinea foul and a green woodpecker next to the wetlands.
