Purple Sandpipers at Portishead

Friday 28th January 2011

Five Purple Sandpipers were at Battery Point, Portishead, over the high tide this afternoon (photos above and below). Very nice they looked too in nice lighting conditions as they picked amongst the Channelled Wrack, and well worth the detour from my 'taxi' duties to Bristol. Three Rock Pipits and a Turnstone provided further interest here.

A stop off at Aust Warth produced no owls despite a wait from 3.45pm until dusk, although one Shortie was reported earlier.
