Venus Pool - then there were 27.....

Still on a high from from yeaterday's invasion - crikey, we're getting more waders than Blithfield and Belvide put together! (Over two days of the year anyway).

I just had to check and by lunchtime today the flock of Black-tailed Godwits had dwindled to 27! By Shropshire standards, a pretty impressive count nevertheless. Just possible to squeeeeeeeeeze them all into this frame??






Then, down to the serious business of feeding up before departure.....






Quite amusing to watch the flock dynamics, there wasn't a leader and where one bird went the rest duly followed - then all change, lets follow someone else....

Start counting, a bigger than usual image to click on......






Oh well, they'll be gone by tomorrow - wonder what's looming next? Osprey methinks.....
