An Evening at Benacre
Monday the 20th August saw Jenny and I walking down to Benacre Broad on a balmy late summer's evening. Very little was seen from the hide save for 300+ Greylag Geese at the back and both Knot (winter plumage) and Common Sandpiper feeding on the Broad/ beach edge and Little Grebe on the Broad too. A walk back along the cliffs revealed a male Common Scoter close in on the sea, which sadly was constantly preening its bedraggled looking flight feathers which must have been oiled.
