Just had time on Sunday for a couple of hours across the county at Inner Marsh Farm (IMF)
The weather was miserable but a bit of fresh air never did any harm....
Only a couple of images and as the weather wasnt condusive to light and anyhow it was fairly quiet on the species count but a large flock of 200 Greylag geese greeted me at the reserve entrance
Black Tailed Godwits are usually in good numbers here, but even today only 80 or so were willing to put up with the, for the most part driving rain....
feeding, resting and preening
the Avocets have done well this year and here shows a juvenile with a parent
The Greenshank are a wonderful Wader species, unfortunatly today they were just out of photo range but here is one from another visit last year ..... even if it isnt quite showing off its green shanks.
just before leaving for home and close to IMF at Burton Marsh I saw this fella
At first I thought Little Egret but turns out to be a Great White Egret
and just to round off the mornings trip how about a couple of Marsh Harriers
a superb end to the morning
