18.04.18. Birdlog.

An after work walk along the edge of No.5 tank overlooking No.6 on the hottest day of the year…so far.

There was a flock of 130 Black-tailed Godwit, 16 Redshank, 1 Ruff and two Dunlin with 6 additional Black-tailed Godwit and 4 Ruff on the mitigation pools on No.3. Ducks included: 61 Tufted Duck, c100 Common Shelduck, c70 Shoveler and c200 Common Teal.

A distant male and female Marsh Harrier, a Cetti’s Warbler and a male Wheatear were the only other birds noted on a lacklustre birdwatch.
