Frampton & WWT

Saturday 16th May 2009

There was little of note at Saul Warth this morning, save a Little Egret, but a check on the Sailing Lake did produce a pair of Yellow Wagtails, plus two Common Terns (below) and lots of hirundines and Swifts. South Lake at Slimbridge WWT hosted two Mediterranean Gulls, one, a second-summer, I didn't see as it flew of just as Andy spotted it, but I then found a first-summer which was much more obliging (above). The strong southerly winds, with frequent showers, failed to produce any seabird interest on the early afternoon tide at Middle Point, but we did see 13 Sanderlings, three Ringed Plovers, three Dunlins, seven Curlews, five Oystercatchers, nine Shelducks and a summer-plumaged Grey Plover.
