RSPB Newport Wetlands/Goldcliff

Brief visit east this afternoon with the grandchildren. Car park at RSPB Newport Wetlands, Uskmouth almost completely full!! Away from the noise of the cafe and playground, pleased to have nice views of a Little Owl from the inner path. Nice scope views anyway. Bit too distant for photos but had an attempt with the lens at 400mm and a 1.4x converter and a crop as far as I dare [see below original and crop]. At Goldcliff viewing virtually impossible into blinding sun but did get 3 Spotshanks at far LH end of first lagoon, plus 8 Avocet, 1 Ringed Plover, plus Redshank and Lapwing, plus the usual dabbling ducks.
