With a bit of time to spare I managed to do a walk around the whole perimeter of the reserve yesterday. Consequently I managed to get a half decent photo or two and also clock up some new and interesting plants.
The scores on the doors were 9 Curlew Sandpipers, 3 Greenshank, 15 Ruff, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, 2 Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, 1 Common Sandpiper, 3 Green Sandpipers and 2 Snipe. 5 Pintail were also new-in
The plants were all along the eastern edge bund and included Nodding Bur Marigold, Water-plantain, Celery-leaved Buttercup, Perennial Sow Thistle and Gypsywort plus loads of Purple Loosestrife.
Back on site again today with Jus and Andy and the main differences/additions were 4 Greenshank, 5 Ringed Plover, 5 Dunlin, 9 Ruff, 1 Wigeon, Green Woodpecker, Marsh Harrier, Sparrowhawk and 2 Common Buzzards.
