Tuesday 22nd August

Same birds as usual pretty much sums it up! The floods have been receding somewhat because of the warmer weather but with a prolonged rainy period forecast for the end of the week there should be no problem about them drying out. The actual counts from today were: 3 GREENSHANK, 2 REDSHANK, 5 RINGED PLOVER, 3 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER, 9 COMMON SANDPIPER, 1 Golden Plover. Yesterday the 4 BLACK-TAILED GODWITS were still about though there was no sign of them today. Hirundines were on the move through with several Sand Martins hawking over the floods with the Housies and Swallows. There have been one or two Swifts lingering over my garden the last few days
