Slimbridge

Posted by Richard on 7 February 2009 in English (English)

We went to see the ducks, and flamingoes, and ducks, and long-tailed tits, and ducks, at Slimbridge, where there are some ducks, last weekend. It seemed a shame not to have the GPS switched on while walking around, really. So I've made a start at mapping the place.

All the twitchers were very excited about some big white lump of a bird that was sitting on a hillock. It looked a bit pissed off to me. Maybe it was the Venezuelan grumbling bird.

Slimbridge does have a rather splendid observation tower that permits the mapper to photograph the near vicinity. Consequently the bit near the tower is better mapped than the rest...

Anyone feel like rendering leisure=bird_hide?

Location: Joan Sanderson Memorial Bridge, Stroud, Gloucestershire, South West England, England, GL2 7BT, United Kingdom

There's been some discussion about hides - here and a wiki page here. I don't know if any final conclusion has been drawn

Is the tower tall enough to get a ducks-eye photo, or would the rectifying be too extreme?
