Duke of Burgundy Butterflies

Places to visit

The Cotswold Water Park is well worth a visit with so many pits to look at there is always something to find, there should be Little Ringed Plover, Hobby, cuckoo, waders, terns and many warbler species

Severn Beach area can be very good for waders, the best area is between the 2 motorway bridges at Northwick Warth / New Passage area looking upriver from the last house and at the excellent new Pilning wetlands, Severn Beach sea wall can be worth a look an hour either side of the high tide if we get prolonged south west winds for terns and if you are lucky Skuas

Salisbury Plain can worth a look if passing through, if you are lucky you could find Stone Curlew, Hobby, Whinchat, Wheatear, Grasshopper Warbler, Turtle Dove and Quail

Leica Ultravid 7x42 HD+ Review by Ian

Tuesday, 7 April 2015 10:53:02 Europe/London

Leica Ultravid 7x42 HD+ Binoculars

The 7x42 specification in binoculars is one that is often overlooked, mainly in favour of the 8x42 models but the 7x magnification does offer benefits so as one of the latest additions to Leica’s binocular line up I decided to give them a try.

January- March 2015

Places to visit

Slimbridge in Gloucestershire is brilliant for Ducks, Swans and Geese, all giving very close views from the many hides.

The Cotswold Water Park is well worth a visit with so many pits to look at there is always something to find, there should be Goosander, Goldeneye and with a little luck Smew and Scaup, try pits 29, 30, 44, 57, 68 a, 68b and 74, if you are out late then try pit 74 or 16 for a gull roost, I have found Iceland and Glaucous Gulls here in the past

Severn Beach area can also be very good for Wildfowl, the best area is between the 2 motorway bridges at Northwick Warth / New Passage area looking upriver from the last house, Severn Beach sea wall can be worth a look and if you are lucky you might find a Diver or winter grebe, if you do please let me know!
