Spoonbill

Sunday 10th May 2009

The appearance of a Spoonbill at Saul Warth this morning was very welcome, given the recent lack of county rarities. I'd also missed the one at WWT a few weeks ago. The Spoonbill spent most of the time asleep as I was observing it, but it did have the odd fidget (above). Three Redshanks, 18 Black-tailed Godwits and two Common Terns were also seen here, while a walk around to the estuary produced just four Whimbrels, a group of three plus a flyover. Two Hobbies, a Nightingale and a Cuckoo were around Frampton Pools.
