Frampton and WWT

Saturday 4th - Sunday 5th February 2017
Cattle Egret, Frampton-on-Severn
Saturday's birding was spent at WWT hoping to locate a Lapland Bunting that has been seen recently. A long search across the Dumbles was fruitless as was a scan from Zeiss Hide for Spotted Redshank. The highlight was a male Goshawk which was seen from the Holden Tower over the Top New Piece flying over the Long Pool and the Tack Piece.

On Sunday at least three Cattle Egrets were in a horse paddock off Arlingham Road between Frampton and Saul.

At the red bed flashes north of Splatt Bridge four Green Sandpipers were present.
