White-tailed Lapwing at WWT

Friday 9th July 2010

I got good views of the WHITE-TAILED LAPWING at Slimbridge this afternoon, showing well from the Zeiss Hide (above and below), what a cracking bird!

I'd already had a good afternoon in the forest, with a Firecrest at Lightmoor (below), three Black-tailed Skimmers and Common Blue, Blue-tailed and Azure Damselflies on the ponds nearby, and three Golden-ringed Dragonflies on the Cannop Brook. Three Silver-washed Fritillaries were also in the area.

I'm hoping the WTL is going to hang around. I didn't finish work until late tonight and I've got to be in early in the morning! I won't finish until 5.00.I'm working Sunday too, but I can get there first thing Sunday morning. Fingers crossed.

Well done on the Firecrests in the FOD.

Got it! What a cracker. Can you send it down to Severnside when you've finished with it Paul.
