Common Sandpiper - Actitis hypoleucos

Photographed at the first pond, Harbour Road, Lydney, Glos, UK.

Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of an Red-legged Partridge,  and  the Greylag Goose by Callum in the 'Guest photographer'

  5. Ooooohhhhh wow. It's beautiful.
    I hope one day Bob, that all the country's will understand how important nature is.
    Next year they are starting to bild a new airport in the middle of Holland, so close to a place where the most
    beautiful birds are living. Helas nature is not worth anything in some people's minds. They only care for MONEY
    Have a beautiful weekend.
