Winter on the Dee Estuary- a film by Scott Reid & the RSPB

Short eared owl and Kestrel fight over dinner!

Just had to share this film with you again. I sent it out last Christmas, well worth another look and as we have lots of new members…..

A great little film by Scott  Reid and the RSPB about the Dee Estuary  in winter, including Burton Mere Wetlands and Hilbre.
Beautifully shot, informative, great for your wader id.
The Shortie who lost his lunch and swirling Knot, terrific.
Dare you not to watch it more than once

By the way

Hoylake High Tide Birdwatch

Saturday 8th November
10 am
Price: Free

Join the Coastal Rangers, the Dee Estuary Voluntary Wardens and the RSPB on this high tide birdwatch at Hoylake to see the large numbers of wading birds as they gather and roost on the shore. We hope to see spectacular large flocks of wading birds as they gather to roost on the beach over high tide, now that they have returned from their breeding grounds for the winter. With a rising tide, we should see the birds at close quarters as they roost and feed.
Beginners welcomes. Dress warmly and bring binoculars if you have them. No need to book.
Meet at the bottom of Trinity Road, King's Parade, Hoylake. There are public toilets nearby and various cafes and pubs for refreshments in Hoylake.
High tide 11:39am
9.61m H
