Spoonbill: My FIRST UK SIGHTING
This bird has been hanging around Parkgate for weeks now and has been on the estuary over the winter but due to work commitments I have been unable to get out and see it.
Pink-footed Geese where flying feeding along the marsh behind the Spoonbill
It was snoozing just off the Donkey Sands Flash and very rarely moved to show its amazing spoon shaped bill. It was miles away I got good views in my binoculars but I only had my 300mm lens with me, which struggled with the distance, so I could only get these poor record shots.
