28th January
Spent a few hours at Walmsley CBWPS near Wadebridge , the weather was not to bad for a change with some long periods of sunshine, Many of the birds were  fairly distant but still always something to look at , and the best bird here was a Spoonbill which was easy to pick out. Lots of wildfowl present including Gadwall.Shoveller,Wigeon,Mallard Tufted Duck, Pintail and Teal ( but no sign of the Green Winged Teal which has been around recently). Also a few waders, Curlew, Lapwing and a Ruff dropped in. I was able to get a few  record shots.

    1. Always nice to spend some time here, always something to see ,thanks to your hard work. Do you think you could get the birds to come just a little bit closer next tome though!
