A quick view over No.3 tank this evening didn’t produce anything new but the wind was still blustery and was probably responsible for the birds keeping a low profile. TheĀ Avocets are having a big problem with gulls and theĀ 145 1st summer black-head’s were acting like a bunch of kids with time on their hands and are lingering in areas where perhaps they shouldn’t.

No.6 tank had 9 Ringed Plover and a lone Dunlin. Otherwise, a poor showing for shorebirds.

Three Wheatear at Marsh Farm were enjoying the evening sunshine.
