No car today so a good opportunity to add to my list of birds seen within walking distance of home. Living on Poole Quay, woodland birds are not exactly on the doorstep. Although Upton Country Park is easily walkable, I realised I hadn't actually done it yet, so headed there first to add Green Woodpecker (right), Nuthatch and Treecreeper to said list.
A single Spotted Redshank (right) was also in Holes Bay with good numbers of Black-tailed Godwit and Redshank further out.
Wigeon were noticeably fewer in number today, but plenty of Teal (right) and a few Red-breasted Merganser were busy pairing up.
