30.07.18. Birdlog.

A dash down to the Weaver Bend to catch the tail end of the earlier tide but it didn’t quite work to plan…the water level was much higher than at the weekend so there wasn’t much to look at, apart from an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull swallowing a big Perch whole.

Relocating to the banks of No.6 tank didn’t fare much better with the Ruddy Shelduck having absconded leaving 10 Common Shelduck to fill the void. Apart from a small flock of Black-headed Gull and two straggly looking Black-tailed Godwit the cracked mud much to absorbed the recent rainfall because there wasn’t much change in the dampness of the patch on the tank.

Three juvenile Marsh Harrier were play fighting over the distant reed bed and a Peregrine was back on the blue topped chimney at Weston Point.

Observers: Arthur Harrison, WSM (images).
