Wednesday 4th July

More autumn passage birds today. The 2 COMMON SANDPIPERS were still around, today along the North Shore and the number of LITTLE RINGED PLOVERS has now grown to 7 birds, a mix of adults and juveniles. The (or another) smart summer plumaged BLACK-TAILED GODWIT was back and a calling CURLEW flew over but didn't land. There were 6 little egrets on the floods this morning adding an exotic touch to the floods. The gull roost is still almost entirely black-headed gulls though I was reminded by Nic Hallam today that we can soon start to look for juv. Med. Gulls in amongst them.

Some rather grainy video footage of the bird, filmed in gloomy conditions
