30th April 2013
Time was getting on so we didn't bother with the Fen Hide and the Meadow Trail, but headed straight out on the path to the beach. There were plenty of birds singing including the raucous Cetti's Warbler, Willow Warbler and this rather confiding Chiffchaff.
As usual the path to the beach provided great close-ups of a number of birds, including this male Teal and male Pintail.
However, a bonus was this summer-plumaged Spotted Redshank, which was a little distant but stunning nevertheless.
But the star of the show today was this summer-plumaged Black-tailed Godwit, which insisted on feeding just 10 yards away from the busy path. Why can't all birds behave like this??
