Typical of this time of year it's pretty quiet at the moment, I went off to Blacktoft Sands yesterday afternoon after work, a few Waders are passing back through now, Black Tailed Godwits, Green Sandpipers, Ruff etc plus several Spotted
Redshanks in various states of moult, one or two young Bearded Reedlings were flitting around the reeds and calling, the young
Montagu’s Harriers have reportedly
fledged in the last couple of days but I only saw the male this evening, the Marsh Harriers put on a good show as
usual though and up to eight Little
Egrets graced the site.
