Venus Pool - Barwits!

A late start but am I glad I did call at VP. Phenomenal movement of Bar-tailed Godwits across the UK which even managed to involve VP!! On arrival just after 9.00, there were five on the central island....






Record shots only but the four summer plumage birds were absolute crackers :-)








After about 40 minutes, they got a little flighty and eventually....






They were off - flying East....






I checked out Wood Lane (for the Wood Sandpiper I was hoping to find?) No joy but a consolation Cuckoo flushed near the car park was welcome! A cross County drive to Whixall Moss next.....
