Tide Mills has been really good this year with it being one of the main sites for the Long Tailed Blues in the late summer, along with good numbers of Clouded Yellows. Then, after the butterfly season, the Grey Phalarope. Now, a juvenile Spoonbill has arrived. When I arrived this morning it was asleep as most Spoonbills always seem to be. However, it was soon awake and foraging in the muddy river.
It certainly seemed to be finding plenty of food as it spent the next 40 minutes or so hunting.
The end of a small fish!!
