Driving along the road next to Wells Quay we unexpectedly spotted a Diver and after finding somewhere to park, found the diver to be a Red-throated Diver, which was duly and gratefully photographed! 3 Little Grebes were also here, with one directly below us, sheltering against the quay wall.
A look for the Rough-legged Buzzard (which had been the original intention before finding the diver), in the area near Wells Sewage Works, drew a blank, but a plume of smoke arising from human activity from the nearby field may have been the reason for the Rough-legs absence. Still, we saw it a week ago and settled for a grazing Muntjac.
With nothing of note at Wells pools, we stopped in the ‘lay-by’ along the A149 overlooking Burnham Overy marshes where we managed to find 2 Cattle Egrets near the only cattle visible. As in recent visits here the flock of Barnacle Geese was again present along with Pink-footed Geese.
