Spoonbills at Druridge Pools
I saw a report of Snow Geese of "unknown origin" at Cresswell Pond this morning:
As I've never seen a Snow Goose, wild or escaped, I thought I'd take a look:
there was no sign of them by the time I arrived:
I drove back to call in on Druridge Pools and was immediately recompensed by the sight of 2 Spoonbills, one of which was definitely in breeding plumage - they were both actively feeding and occasionally making each other's acquaintance!
Not far away 6 Black- tailed Godwits first slept, then briefly rose in the air, to confirm that they were Blackwits rather than Barwits!
Thank you Ian for chiding me back into blogging
