This morning was another better than average showing for waders. The highlight was six more adult ICELANDIC BLACK-TAILED GODWITS very close to the hide – allowing for some acceptable video to be taken. Also a lone Oystercatcher was still in place on the mud and two Common Sandpipers, a Green Sandpiper and a Common Redshank made for a reasonable haul. I counted just seven Little Egrets.
I was surprised to see four Red Kites together round the back until I realised that Rushy Meadow had been cut over the weekend. I just hope that the breeding warblers weren’t impacted too heavily (Roy Hargreaves)
