What a Stunner

Gave Peterstone another go for the ever elusive Snow Bunting.The Tide had completely covered the saltmarsh so all the birds and the Snow Bunting were feeding just below the sea wall.Best views to date, if anyone is thinking of taking a peep now the tides are high and covering the salt marsh its best to go now as it will vanish forever onto the vast saltmash.The Blackred was a little bit west of the ramp today.Also 5-6 Water Pipits showed well.Back home then for some Jordans Country Crisp with Strawberries. The plan was to visit Magor Marsh to hunt down a bittern as there seem to be a few about at the moment.The plan was changed when news came through of one at Uskmouth. Rest of the afternoon until dusk was spent not seeing any Bitterns but cracking views of Barn owl made up for that a bit.
