Sunday 12th August

Weekends are usually harder for me to visit the Meadow because of family commitments etc but I did manage to sneak in a visit on Sunday evening just as it was starting to get dark. The floods have receded somewhat in the recent hot weather but are looking very good at present. For my efforts I was rewarded with a fine SANDERLING accompanied by a DUNLIN and a couple of RINGED PLOVERS. There were still 3 GREENSHANK around, 8 COMMON SANDPIPERS and a single REDSHANK. There were relatively few gulls around but I did pick out a nice juvenile COMMON GULL. There was also a YELLOW WAGTAIL calling away near the boat moorings.

Also to report, Steve Burch saw a PEREGRINE over the floods on Saturday.
