Axe Estuary

An hour at Island Hide and an hour at the lower hide produced 20+ Lapwing, 5+ Teal, 1 Greenshank, 2+ Little Grebe, 25+ Redshank, 20+ Blacktailed Godwit, 1 Grey Heron, 1 Kestrel, 20+ Curlew, 5+ Shelduck, and atleast 1 Ruff still in the area. Very difficult conditions for birds and humans with galeforce winds and heavy blustery showers most of both were keeping their heads down!! Worth the effort tho'.
