Next stop was Portishead, Battery point and the boating lake. No sign of the Purple Sandpipers, but it wasnt high tide and they are not easy, other than at high tide! The drake Greater Scaup was still showing well on the boating lake though.
Luckily for me i had seen one there a few years ago, and by the time i would have got there it would have been dark! so didnt bother......
Instead i went home and messed about with the Long-eared Owl pic, untilit actually looked like an Owl....what do you think????
