28th June

It was my first visit to the Meadow for a few days and I was saddened to see how the weekend's heat had taken its toll on the flood levels which were now much depleted. It's a pity as the autumn passage seems to be kicking off nicely with another nice variety of waders present this evening. Top of the bill was a single BLACK-TAILED GODWIT in Burgess Channel, with a REDSHANK and one of the OYSTERCATCHERS's along the North Channel and to round it off there was a nice party of 10 LITTLE RINGED PLOVERS near Burgess Field gate. There were also two STOCK DOVES on the Hinterland this evening and a few common terns were reported along the river. Let's hope that we get some decent rain to replenish the floods so that we can enjoys some more wader passage action.
