Venus Pool - Another Marshie!

A trip to Norfolk was sadly put on hold as there was no room in any of the B&Bs approached (and I was well into double figures when I gave up!) Next week maybe....

What would Shropshire turn up? A late start at Venus Pool got off to a cracking start with a flyover Marsh Harrier! A great bird for Shropshire and even scarcer at VP, a female - probably adult but immature not ruled out given the distance, light and flying away angle. Record shot alert.....






A Greenshank dropped in and was straight back out but at least the Common Snipe flying around had the decency to linger.....






I was getting itchy feet by midday..... Just before I set off, here's a couple of shots of the Kingfisher taken during the week....








Off on a Tit Clee Black Redstart hunt then.....
