Axe Estuary

A two hour tour of duty as the Tower Hide's resident 'expert' this afternoon produced a nice highlight in the shape of this pristine juv Pintail which dropped in with a flight of Mallard...

Other entertainment was provided by a Whimbrel, 11 Black-tailed Godwits, a fleeting Kingfisher, 3 distant Wood Sandpipers in front of the BHM Island Hide and a steady stream of 'Wet & Wild Weekend' punters - a praiseworthy endeavour by the EDDC Countryside team.
