Aylburton is a village on the North side of the Severn estuary, between Lydney and Chepstow, so it is in England, just. The Warth is the bit down by sea, I do not know what warth means but it is what I would call the saltings.
The morning was fairly grey and the tide was out, never a good thing when you are birding as the waders are miles away and just dots on the horizon. I had binoculars but not my scope.
Once onto the flat grassy area it was fairly devoid of birds, there were a few Meadow pipits and vast numbers of crows along with a few gulls. I am not much into gulls, I think they were mainly of the Herring species.
Apart from the huge numbers of Crows, into the thousands I would say, I did see Shell duck, Curlew, Teal, and what must have been Red legged partridge, but I was surprised that they were in amongst the large rocks which act as a sea defence. When disturbed they flew off low and fast, typical of partridge, but I never got a good view of them.
So I adopted a technique I used to use when living in Norfolk and dropped down out of sight behind the sea bank and approached unseen. When I guessed I was about level with the bird I slowly climbed the bank and photographed it.
I expect this has happened to you at some time in the past. As I said this area is quite reminiscent of the Norfolk coast, and I felt quite at home, you could ignore the hills a few miles inland as it was quite misty and concentrate on the plants, all quite familiar, like this Buckshorn Plantain and Scurvy grass.
And to round off my Norfolk nostalgia there were quite a few areas of Phragmites which is common in Norfolk where they call it Norfolk reed, but everywhere else it is called common reed. No Bearded tits though.
I also saw Grey Heron, Oystercatcher, Song Thrush, Dunock, Robin, Blackbird, Blue tit, Wren… but nothing very spectacular.
