Slimbridge and Frampton
On a lovely sunny afternoon, first at Slimbridge, a pale first-winter Glaucous Gull feeding on a dead sheep on the Dumbles, the Temmink's Stint on one of the islands on the scrape in front of the Holden Tower, the Great Skua on the river, and two Oystercatchers on the Tack Piece. The female Ring-necked Duck showed at 2.50pm on the nearest pool on the Tack Piece and I quickly moved to the Stephen Kirk hide to get better views. At Frampton Sailing Lake later, a Little Gull was fishing until 4.15pm. (Photos Paul Masters).
