Another great afternoon and yesterdays highlight

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
