More Migrants Arrive
Cycling along the Gloucester-Sharpness canal to work this morning I found a Common Sandpiper near Rea Bridge, which flew about 50m back towards The Pilot and disappeared into the cover on the opposite bank. Also three Lesser Whitethroats along this stretch of the canal towpath between the two bridges. I heard the first one singing just after The Pilot (Sellars Bridge) and also saw it in song-flight, then I heard two more singing on the opposite side of the canal between here and Rea Bridge. The day was rounded off with a trip to Frampton this evening with Andy to see a Spoonbill on the 100-acre (photo: Paul Masters).
