Trip to Slimbridge


He's thinking "wtf is that bloke doing led down in all that duck sh*t !"



Date: 07/10/2014
Location: Slimbridge WWT
Observation: Headed to Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, weather said rain but headed there anyway blue skies all the way there with very bright sunshine. Staff doing Work on Rushy, well almost everywhere so no birds on the Rushy Pen or Tack Piece ! Walked down to Holden Tower, Barnacle, Greylag, Lapwing but distant so went to South Lake to see Pink Footed Geese very distant no pics. Lots of Greylag and Black Tailed Godwits about, but as always in the South hide sun in wrong place, blinding !

Saw a Chiffchaff by Decoy hide and lots of fly over Greylags but a bit bare.
So took a few snaps of Captives birds and the Golden Eye.





Hooded Mergansers one of my favorites !
