Aldsworth & Slimbridge

Friday 10th August 2007

An excellent evening's birding with Andy (and his eagle-eyed son Thomas) with an immature male Hen Harrier hunting over the barley field immediately to the south of Windrush Airfield this evening, also nine calling Quail, a juvenile Grey Wagtail, two Barn Owls, two Buzzards and two Kestrels in the area.

Earlier at Slimbridge on South Lake there were 47 Black-tailed Godwits, two Spotted Redshanks, 15 Common Redshanks, three Ruff, 400 Black-headed Gulls and 120 Lapwings.
