It's still very quiet on the floods but appearances can be deceptive. On my usual late afternoon visit to the floods at first sight all that was present were three OYSTERCATCHERS and a pair of COMMON TERNS. However when I scanned the shoreline closely I found a nice mixed flock of wader all hidden away in the tall dock leaves that are protruding above the flood water. There were four DUNLIN, 2 RINGED PLOVER and one LITTLE RINGED PLOVER. It just shows how carefully you have to look.
