The Shank Race!!!

A strange blog title, but it's easily explained! At Mill Copse Pool this morning I came across a Redshank, Spotted Redshank & Greenshank all feeding together on the far shore. I managed to capture a bit of admittedly poor video which shows the race, the Spotted Redshank hitting the tape three lengths clear of the Greenshank with the Redshank bringing up the rear!

Highlight of the day was 2 Swallows - my first of the year - that flew over my head at Afton Marsh just after 5pm this evening, being joined by a further 4 as they followed the line of the estuary. Magic!!
