Young Spoonbills at Walmsley Sanctuary

Three young Spoonbills have been wintering on the Camel Estuary and Walmsley Sanctuary.  They normally spend long periods of inactivity at the Sanctuary but on Sunday they were quite the opposite. The slate flagstones were used as convenient perches to practice some early forms of courtship, including carrying sticks, nesting material and some bill clapping.
