|Whooper Swan, Shawell A5 Lagoons, May 9th 2017|
A few gulls had gathered on the bank between the lagoons and amongst them was a second-summer Yellow-legged Gull. I scanned the shore hoping that a wader had dropped in, but nothing was doing. I walked the short distance between the viewings points and thought about packing up. I had just one last scan as always and this time I was in luck! A smart Wood Sandpiper had appeared.
I walked along the footpath which runs along the side of the lagoon and managed to get close enough to get some good quality video.
