Slimbridge....... first time for a while!

12 Feb - A couple of hours at Slimbridge at the w/e - the Bewick's Swans will be leaving soon and are starting to display to each other. Wildfowl in general are in smart breeding plumage at present. Water Rails showing very well at the Willow hide, seemingly not aware that the field guides describe them as skulking! Avocets back on South Lake plus large numbers of waders on the Tack Piece floods ......... the usual impressive winter spectacle.........
