This afternoon I took a walk around Stanpit Marshes Nature reserve, with the weather starting out sunny, read the recent nature sighting board – and there apparently were Scandinavian Rock pipets sighted there recently. I of course then set out to see one!
This is my contender!
Whether it is or not I am not sure – there is some interesting reading about the Scandinavian Rock pipets on the Christchurch Ornithological Society’s Website
There weather started to turn dark over the priory – and later the hail hit me!
Just before the hailstorm my final picture of the walk – some gulls in flight.
