15.08.17. Birdlog

The  smaller flock of c300 Black-tailed Godwit were again feeding and resting in the shallows. A similar number of Dunlin were close by and another flock was on the east side of the tank. Several Redshank and Ringed Plover dropped in to feed and were joined by a Greenshank. There were 3 Common Buzzard and 2 Kestrel active in the area and several Raven passed overhead.

Observer: Paul Ralston.

Field Grasshopper (Jimmy Cricket) were chirping from the undergrowth  lumbering through the grass but were too timid to reveal themselves. I did manage to capture one eventually.
