Wednesday 12th December 2014 - Pickerings Pasture

A short visit to Pickerings Pasture provided dramatic lighting towards the Silver Jubilee Bridge and Fiddlers Ferry power station.

A kingfisher was seen at the scrape. As high tide approached, vast flocks of waders repeatedly landed and took flight on the edge of Hale Marsh. Another visitor at the scrape indicated he had previously seen large numbers of sanderlings behaving in exactly this way.
