26th-27th June 2007

I had to go to Bristol today on business so made a quick detour on the way back to Avonmouth to see the drake Ring-necked Duck. It is still on the square pool opposite the sewage works (off Kings Weston Lane) where I first saw it nearly two years ago in July 2005. A female Goldeneye and three Green Sandpipers were also present today (Photos: Ring-necked Duck above and Goldeneye with Tufted Ducks and a Coot below - see it? - it's the third duck from the front! © Paul Masters).
Yesterday evening I went to check on the Bee Orchids at Arlingham, which are still in flower although the older blooms are going over. A Little Owl was nearby and another Little Owl was at Elmore.
