This Ringed Plover did'nt fly off, at first!
Oyster Catchers and Knot, with Avocet in the foreground
I have just started working through some of my pictures from this last week.
Last Sunday we visited the RSPB reserve at Snettisham for the first time arriving before 8:00am on a glorious sunny morning, the first shot of the lakes was taken a bit towards the sun but the aim is to give you an idea of the place.
There was lots of Oyster Catchers, Knot flying over the estuary and loads of grey geese but also a few Brent and a small number of Barnacles flew in.
We did the circular walk of the reserve in wonderful weather. We aim to come back when they have a high tide and the thousands of knot on the estuary flock close to the hides in one of the great birding spectaculars. In the meantime we got a small taster from Sanctuary hide with a flock of tightly knit knot (try saying that repeatedly) in the middle of a semi circle of Oyster Catchers.
