More sightings from Carole and Martin

Volunteers Carole and Martin braved the gales yesterday to visit Milton Locks nature reserve and they have sent me some more lovely photos. The wildlife didn’t seem to mind Storm Doris and they spotted and snapped a handsome mute swan, a turnstone and a redshank .mute-swan-by-martin-roberts

The turnstone (below) is beautifully camouflaged. Looks for the orange legs and you will spot it.

I’m off to Milton Locks later today for an outdoor learning session and I’m hoping to find the mysterious ‘Milton Monster’. I’ll report any discoveries.
