Elmley 18.10.2010

Another visit to Elmley as the tides were about right, one kestrel was seen on the way in a few meadow pipits at distance The road has been repaired in places and is much improved although work is still needed. Arrived Wellmarsh Hide with great expectations , entered the hide and low and behold "nothing" a few coot and a few resting Teal was the sum total, although at great distance a common buzzard was sitting on a fence post Dozens of sheep were all around the fenced enclosure in front of the hide and walked past us in single file made me feel quite sleepy. The pic's below represent my total encounters with wildlife, the sheep pic is not quite like the Countryfile winning entry but there is always next year.

  1. Hi Dave.It is a shame you had a bad trip. Now, at this time of year things should be getting better on the island.
    It is about time the track was done up. Hopefully it will be better next time I take my car down to the hides.
