Sky Watch Friday - border crossing.
Todays SWF photo comes from a days birding I did last Sunday. My bird club, Bristol Ornithological Society does a Tally Hunt every July. Basically you form teams (up to 4 people I think) and bird from 6am to 6pm (if you want to) and see how many birds you can see in that time. This was my first Tally Hunt which I did with my birding friend Jane (just us two). In the end we saw 73 species which isn't too bad. We lost by one bird which is a shame! (-: I didn't have time to take many photos, but one of our stops for waders (shorebirds) was on the River Severn which seperates England from Wales. This is the newer Severn Bridge which spans the River Severn just north of Bristol.
