Chelmarsh - Skua sticking!

An awful day on the road today with a taxi run to Bath and back (eating 7 hours out of the day!) An early call at VP provided 2 Ringed Plovers, 4 Green Sandpiper plus 1 Common Sand. The Cormorant count was up to 42 yesterday and they are not the only feathered fiends having a fish takeaway!



With news of the Arctic Skua sticking, I had another evening visit and it came a little closer to the bank (a bit more of a crop too!)







Martyn really is on a roll, picking up another excellent bird today - this juvenile Black-necked Grebe, now I really am pushing this next image in the record shot stakes.....



Great birds - it would be really nice to have a closer encounter
in good light though!
