We are pleased to report that everybody seemed to enjoy the coach trip to Frampton Marsh even though some of us got caught in the open on the top of the high banking for 10mins in the rain. It was great to be there in a group and we all could pass on bird information to each other and help identify birds. Members were also able to share their scopes with those that did not have one. In particular, we got good views of a merlin and a peregrine. Other birds seen included american wigeon, barnacle goose, pintail, hen harrier, marsh harrier, golden plover, black-tailed godwit and long-billed dowitcher.
We would also like to thank the staff at RSPB Frampton Marsh who were very helpful.
