Sandwich, late May 2023
Trip out to the Sandwich Bay Bird Observatory. There was a cold wind gusting in from the sea, so we stayed warm in the Restharrow Scape hides, rather than walking around Worth Marsh.
There were a pair of Canada geese with three goslings on the bank and several Black-headed gull nests with chicks on the islands.
The challenge for the morning was to get pictures of flying House Martins, who were feeding in and around the scrape. 1700 pictures taken and about 10 were worth keeping! You must admire anyone who successfully took pictures of flying Swallows, Swifts or Martins before the advent of digital photography.
Other species present included Gadwall, Coot, Tufted duck and Little Grebe.
