There was not a breath of wind this afternoon on my visit to the Meadow. The overnight rain had topped things up a little which was nice to see. On the bird front it was pretty much the same as yesterday with the 2 RUFF and 3 REDSHANK still about and though there was no sign of the dunlin there was a single SNIPE by way of compensation. The PINTAIL count was twelve today. The dark-eyed YELLOW-LEGGED GULL from yesterday was still about to start with though it didn't linger today and the gull roost was dominated by black-headed gulls with not many larger gulls to ogle.
