14 Dec - No apologies, Slimbridge is such a great place to go for a morning. A beautiful, fairly mild, sunny Dec day. Up to 3 Water Rails at the Willow hide, with good views on occasions and a nice low window for the camera. Bewick's Swans numbers increasing, and superb low sunlight to see them at their best. Plus close Snipe and wildfowl, 3 Little Stints on the Rushy Pen and awe-inspiring wader flocks over the floods when flushed by Peregrines and other raptors. Very therapeutic as always.
