28th August 2022 – WWT Slimbridge, Gloucestershire

With an early visit to the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust’s reserve at Slimbridge we missed the Bank Holiday crowds and traffic. With the extended period of dry weather much of the wetlands were very dry but there was plenty enough to keep us occupied throughout the morning.

The highlights were ruff, greenshank, common and spotted redshank, avocet, lapwings and black-tailed godwits. We were so surprised by the dry conditions towards the estuary that we completely missed the common cranes which everyone else managed to see!
