Look up

Hanging from the topmost cable of one of the lines of pylons above Uskmouth Lagoons. It appears this 1st-winter Blackwit had managed to get its lower mandible caught between the two intertwined wires. Presumably/hopefully died on impact. Not a great look for a nature reserve,... or National Grid.

Dear Iceland, we owe you a Black-tailed Godwit.
