Black tailed Godwit unsettled by a Sparrowhawk





Our Walmsley flock of Black tailed Godwits were very unsettled this evening as a Sparrowhawk made a few sorties of the reserve keeping them on the move.

A couple of Ruff amongst them and a few Wigeon.







Spoonbill feeding at Ryans Field Hayle Sun 19th March 2017.



I spent an hour with this spoonbill at Ryan's Field at Hayle yesterday as it fed in front of the hide.

It juggled fish in its bill whilst I juggled a large Philps pasty in mine!
