Great White Egret on Herriotts Bridge pool, Chew Valley Lake. Somerset These birds have recently colonised the UK, this was one of Three on the lake that day. Unfortunately I lost the rubber Eyepiece cover as I arrived on site so due to my desire to save my Spectacle lens by not holding the hard eyepiece to the lens, focus is not as sharp as I would like

Incoming!

Reserve View

Newport Wetlands NNR, view across the Reserve from the sea wall at Goldcliff Image shows one of the three lagoons on site. This area is a lot more secluded than the Eastern end of the reserve, at Uskmouth where the RSPB leas a small area for their Shop and Centre. These are Saline lagoons which are managed by Natural Resources Wales, to appeal to waders on passage, Some recent passers by include Glossy Ibis, Spoonbill, and Great White Egret. Avocet, and other more common small waders Breed on site. You can alo expect the usual predators drawn by the bird life, Peregrine, Buzzard, Hobby, and Marsh Harrier This is also more difficult to find, than the Main site as it is not signposted. There is a map available from the RSPB centre, but the GPS encoding on this image is possibly easier
