Rare Bird

Saturday 29th September 2012
The highlight was Avro Vulcan XH558 performing a flypast at Staverton on its Diamond Jubilee tour. See http://www.vulcantothesky.org/ and get the App to help support it. Some photos here as it did its rounds just before 4pm in glorious sunshine.
Earlier at WWT Slimbridge, the juvenile RED-NECKED PHALAROPE was feeding on floods on The Dumbles, but quite distant. Around the high tide, waders seen from Holden Tower included two Curlew Sandpipers, 45 Grey Plovers, three Little Stints, a Sanderling, a few Ringed Plover and c100 Dunlin.On the Top New Piece from Zeiss Hide, the LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER with Black-tailed Godwits, two Spotted Redshanks, a Greenshank, three Knot, 50 Golden Plovers and 33 Redshanks. A fully-winged drake Mandarin was near the hide.
