Stanpit Marshes and the Priory n Pipet

Light before the rain towards Christchurch Priory

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.
