Default Burton mere rspb 19 - 03 - 2017

Arrived around 09.45am on a very damp and blustery morning, first visit for a while and hoping to return in November this year again with the local RSPB group from Stourbridge.

Not too much report from the reserve due to the weather being very blustery especially overlooking the Estuary from the viewing point over the Railway bridge at the end of the reserve but we did manage to see a Great White Egret for a few minutes before we gave up with the wind making it impossible to keep either the scopes or the binoculars steady.

Onto what was around the rest of the reserve yes there were a few waders but all were taking cover from the showers and the wind they were Redshank, Spotted Redshank, Ruff, Dunlin and Curlew other than this not too much else except the usual suspects.
