Three Wigeon feeding in the river. The water at this point would be fresh as the tide was fully out.
A little further along the same stretch of river
Another bunch of Wigeon a couple of males but mainly female. In the foreground is a solo Oyster catcher ad a couple of Sandpipers but I can't see what type.
Wigeon (20) again but this time joined by a flock of Avocet (38 I get), who would be a water bug in there? Also at the far side of the river is a Shelduck. I am beginning to think the two waders are Green Sandpipers, again not certain though.
These were a delight for me I must say as I had never seen them here (or anywhere!!) before. A small flock of about 18 Brent Geese feeding on the weed. Early winter visitors.
A solo Redshank asleep on the mud.
A small group of Starling feeding on the weed in the bay
A solo Lapwing resting on the mud. There were a number of these around the bay but they proved very difficult to get a good photo of. This one was a little more obliging.
Happy days, 90 minutes of birding and a new species. Happy bunny!!
