All the action was again on No.6 tank today when a Peregrine hurtled through the 393 Black-tailed Godwit flock and hidden in their midst was a lone Bar-tailed Godwit (SO). Yesterday’s two 2nd summer Mediterranean Gull were again present with 130 Black-headed and a 2nd summer Common. The Common Teal numbers increased by two to four birds. Likewise, the Common Pochard doubled to two drakes. There were 5 Avocet but the Curlew Sandpipers couldn’t be relocated. A vocal Willow Warbler sang out from the hedgerow.
Observers: Tony Broome, Sean O’Hara.
