Avocets

As you may have noticed we have put nothing up for a couple of weeks. Sue's been working overtime and I've been having camera trouble. We did go to Exminster at the week-end and the Marshes were frozen as was most of the land around Powderham. The Avocets were taken at Topsham but most of the mudflats were frozen, keeping everything at a distant.

  2. Excellant images John. Avocet are a target of mine for Febuary, undecided yet though on Exminster Marshes or the Lynher. Fancy Spoonbill as well so the Plymouth area may win.
