07.08.17. Birdlog

An early evening walk around No.6 tank. There were Common Shelduck with a few getting bigger ‘shelduckling’ still present with a few Mallard, 1 Shoveler, 12 Tufted Duck and 14 Common Teal but generally duck numbers were low again. A loosely gathered flock of 22 Little Grebe were about the water.

What waders were here tonight included 30 Lapwing, 25 Black-tailed Godwit, 15 Redshank, 2 Green  and a Common Sandpiper which took to the air as a juvenile Marsh Harrier flew over and was shown the door by the Lapwings. An extra 10 godwit were on the mitigation pools with 20 Greylag and 50 Canada Goose.
