Sandy Water Park

The Blue-winged Teal showed really well over the weekend by all accounts and Dave Dawney took this really beautiful image of this very rare visitor to our area. The light the shot was taken in captures perfectly the plumage tones of the bird.

Dave also photographed this colour-ringed Lesser Black-backed Gull (LAA) at the site. Our enquiry received a quick reply from Peter Stewart who informed us that it was ringed at Stoke Orchard Landfill Site, Gloucestershire on the 2nd January 2011 and that this was the first re-sighting of the bird.
