The whimbrel on Black hole marsh this week have been superb and have given some wonderful photo opportunities. With a total of 36 yesterday and a few more today they looked absolutely stunning in the sunlight
This afternoon there were also 3 ring plovers and 8 dunlin
also 13 black tailed godwits
Yesterday what I presumed at the time to be a crane flew over black hole marsh and headed down circling toward Colyford Common. It turned out to be a Somerset ringed crane which was rather nice. Shame it was so high up as it passed over.
Finally back to this afternoon and the 5 canada geese goslings were causing havoc with the waders. One in particular took a liking to these 2 godwits
