06 March 2016 Maiden Lane - Bird Walk

A cool but quite bright morning with a high tide and no problem from the wind; we were about a dozen in the party with Adrian leading. There were a lot of waterfowl on Normandy lagoon. The highlight of the morning was good views of two Slavonian Grebes. We didn’t go on around and down Normandy Lane as usual but retraced our steps from the farthest point near the Yacht Haven. A good morning with a rewarding total of 45 bird species that also included Dark-bellied Brent Goose (below), Black-tailed Godwit, Knot and Greenshank.
