Black-tailed Godwit
   An after work visit to Slimbridge WWT today.

   A fairly decent assortment of Waders were seen.......including Black-tailed Godwits, Green Sandpipers, Ruff etc. Mainly juvenile birds on their first southbound journey.

   While there, there was a small flock of Goldfinches flying about feeding on Thistle heads, and then coming down to drink. But, overtime i moved the camera to photograph them, they were off, except this juvenile bird below.


Ruff & Reeve

Common Cranes
   Last stop in one of the hides, brought in 2 Common Cranes, which flew in from somewhere near the 100-acre......

   Lets hope they stick around, and return to try and breed again next year.
