Friday 10th August

I decided on an early evening visit to the Meadow today: late enough so the heat haze wasn't too much of a problem but not so late that it became hard to view the birds. The recent heat has resulted in a nice bit of shoreline appearing so conditions looked pretty good. There were reasonable numbers of waders about too though perhaps not as good as in the last couple of weeks. The scores on the doors were: 5 REDSHANK, 5 COMMON SANDPIPERS, 4 GREENSHANK, 3 GREEN SANDPIPERS, 1  juv. DUNLIN and several SNIPE.

My photographic efforts were still hampered by the heat haze and 
the distance the birds were away but I did manage this digiscoped record 
shot of one of the Greenshanks
