With rain forecast for the next few days at least it was wonderful to take advantage of a sunny calm day along the Severn Estuary.
We started at New Passage and immediately saw a couple of little egrets flanked by dunlin fly out into the estuary.
One egret continued its flight across the estuary whilst the other returned to “our” side. The dunlin settled further up the estuary. We then walked to Severn Beach where we saw 8 ringed plover and had a cup of coffee.
When we returned to New Passage the tide had fallen a little too much but we could see a large number of waders on the shore line and enjoyed the beautiful views of the estuary.
I think that will be our last chance for a while.
