There was a brisk wind blowing through from the west and it felt cool standing high up on the banks of No.6 tank. There down below were the sheltering Black-tailed Godwit flock barely visible in the lush Michaelmas Daisy vegetation. After a careful scrutinizing of the flock I managed to eek out two breeding plumaged Ruff, several Teal and 2 Little Egret.
There wasn’t much in the way of ducks and that included low numbers of Tufties.
A Peregrine was sat hunched up on the blue-topped chimney attempting concealment from prying eyes beyond the river on the Hale side.
