4 Common Snipe , 2 Oystercatchers, 3 Goosander, no sign of Shoveler
The Starlings displayed very well tonight, see Edwards lovely images, and hope you managed to get some too Kevin. Not sure how long they will be there, but worth the little effort.
I can't recommend going to see the Starling roost at Westbury enough. They have be performing beautifully regardless of the weather, but how much longer they will stay I'm not sure. These were taken in the park next to the cemetery (there is an adjacent car park), which is good to see the murmuration in all its grandure.

Some pics from yesterday at Pwll Penarth (Water Rail, Little Grebe etc) and in the garden from the hide this morning (feeder shots I'm afraid but it does allow decent close views - makes you realise just how damned beautiful some of our birds actually are). Images here
A shot from last night - ended up taking a slightly different and closer approach, trying to set the starlings in the context of the village. Not sure would particularly want to live there at the moment with everything getting a nightly splattering - with sympathy to any Westbury residents reading this
