Pied Avocet (Recurvirostra avosetta)
We visited WWT Washington Wetland Centre the other day. We were lucky enough to see 7 avocets while there; almost a record breaker for the reserve! The centre also holds one of the largest groups of nesting grey herons in Europe. Despite it being bitterly cold and having to break the bank for the public transport to get there, we had a lovely day!
In other news, I got a place on the MSc Biological Photography and Imaging course for 2013-2014 in Nottingham! Very pleased! :)
