A brief visit after work and again I was sat on the banks of No.6 tank where c2000 Black-tailed Godwit were also joined by their cousin the Bar-tailed Godwit.
A single Ruff and 11 Common Snipe shared the shallow waters with a smattering of Common Redshank and c400 Northern Lapwing. Ducks featured 41 Tufted Duck and a big reduction of Northern Pintail, Northern Shoveler, 213 Eurasian Tea, Mallard and singles of Common Shelduck.
A few passerines were noticable by their calls with A Cetti’s Warbler ringing out the loudest.
