Geese and Swans at WWT

Sunday 11th November 2007
Photos of White-fronted Geese and Bewick's Swan from Robbie Garnett hide at Slimbridge WWT this afternoon:


The Tack Piece is getting busy now with wintering waterfowl especially Pintail, Wigeon and Teal. A male Ruff and a Sparrowhawk were also seen on the Tack Piece and from the Holden Tower a Stonechat was at Mid Point, and a large flock of at least 2,000 Golden Plover with 800 Dunlin were an impressive sight in flight over the river (a bit too distant to check for American GP though!). A Bittern was seen at the Zeiss Hide, I only had time for a quick look but by then it was hidden in the reeds. Let's hope it performs as well as last winter.
