Brent Goose at WWT and other sightings
At Hardwicke, on a very gloomy day, a Green Sandpiper (above) was still next to the A38 on a flooded part of the field opposite the large lay-by (near Moreton Valence) this afternoon. At Saul there was a Little Egret and two Great Crested Grebes (below) on the fishing-lake, and a Grey Wagtail (but no sign of the Cattle Egret although it was reported earlier).
At Slimbridge WWT this afternoon, six Ruff and 100 Dunlin were among the Lapwings and Curlew on the field alongside the approach road, a Dark-bellied Brent Goose was on the Tack Piece (bottom) also a Tundra Bean Goose, while a Stonechat and a Buzzard were seen from the Zeiss Hide. A Chiffchaff and a Cetti's Warbler were heard near Robbie Garnett hide.
