HW on the Axe Estuary was at 18:33 this evening, so I arrived on the sandy-beach at Uphill, in front of Weston Yacht Club, at 16:00, a little bit early as it turned out because only a few teal visible. At 16:30, on the slowly rising tide, I eventually picked out two small flocks, each of about 20 birds, and the Green-winged drake was with those in the channel nearest its northern bank. I didn’t watch it for long as I had to hot-foot it back home to Street remembering to stop and buy some gravy granules for the roast-dinner Kay was preparing – it was yummy!!
HW here over the next few days will probably not be suitable until Monday, when it’s at 09:50, or Tuesday at 10:30, assuming being there 2 hours before this.
