Trip Report Sunday 21st October: PILNING WETLANDS RESERVE / AUST WHARF
Leader:  Mark Turnbull

15 Members from Bath RSPB and BathNats met on a cold and misty morning at Aust Wharf
We initialy set off in the direction of the old Severn Bridge and within 15 minutes  we were rewarded with excellent views of a Short-eared Owl hunting over the salt marsh.
After walking back to the cars we decided to drive to New Passage and view the waders that would be visible on the shoreline , the problem we had with that was the thick fog and the temperature had dropped considerably so this part of the trip was cut short.
We recorded a total of 29 species during the day
(a full list is available on request )
