28.04.22. Birdlog.

A watch on the high tide over No.6 tank was quite rewarding with several Black-tailed Godwit spread widely over the shallow water. Also hiding amongst the hoard of godwits were 7 Bar-tailed Godwit, a partial summer Red Knot, 17 Ruff in various stages of breeding plumage males and one reeve. A Little Ringed Plover was present with the highlight being a splendid summer plumaged Spotted Redshank. A Little Egret dropped in for a short siesta.

A Lesser Whitethroat was singing along Lordship Lane with Common Whitethroat, Blackcap, Willow Warbler, Cetti’s Warbler and Western Reed and Sedge Warbler adding to the cacophony. A few Barn Swallow and Sand Martin were moving through.

A male Western Marsh Harrier wandered through No.4 tank.

Observer: WSM.
