Third visit to WWT Slimbridge on a quiet Monday. Weather was overcast with drizzle. The Rushy pen was busy with winter birds and plenty of their curated waterfowl collection available to spot on the various ponds.
Red breasted Merganser
The Aviary was interesting to walkthrough as always but I noticed a couple of concerning issues. There was only one Little Egret visible and it did not look well, and two of the waders, Ruff and Black-tailed Godwit had broken/deformed beaks.
There is never a dull moment with a group of Lapwings. They seem to spook very easily and are always bickering. These were on the Rushy Pen.
