Wintering Wildfowl on the Severn

Yesterday we enjoyed the sunshine down on the banks of the Severn at New Passage between the two Severn Bridges. We watched spectacular large groups of Dunlin circling in flight showing first silver, then white, as they twisted & turned. We also saw large groups of Teal, Wigeon, Curlew, Lapwings, Redshank, Black headed gulls and one Common Gull. It just shows how important the Severn is to birdlife, to native, wintering & migrating species.
