Monday 7th April

I wasn't able to get out to the Meadow over the weekend so after such a good visit on Friday, by today I was champing at the bit to see what about. Sadly there was no sign of the Garganey though the two LITTLE RINGED PLOVERS were still there along the north shore of the North Channel. Fresh in though was a flock of five RINGED PLOVER along the south shore of the Channel. There was also a single BLACK-TAILED GODWIT and the OYSTERCATCHER count had gone up to seven birds. As far as water flow were concerned SHELDUCK numbers had reduced to just seven though the WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was still there. As is my custom for lingering lone ducks and geese, it is probably due a name so I shall christen it "Winifred". There were at least half a dozen Swallows about and there was even one perched on the "Swallow Tree" (the small Hawthorn at the end of the boat moorings).

Some rather shaky video of two of the five Ringed Plovers
