Plym Estuary & Saltram

My first Brambling here since 1994; a male by the duck pond at Saltram House. Also 41 Mandarin Ducks, Red-crested Pochard (female) Red-breasted Merganser (drake), 2 Goosanders (1 drake), 6 Wigeon, 27 Turnstones & still 162 Redshanks. 

A planning application has now been submitted for a solar farm on Chelson Meadow, a wildlife-rich part of this site. Although some concessions have been secured, there are still serious concerns over the impact on wildlife. Please put in a planning objection before 22nd March. Details here:-
