16.07.17. Birdlog (afternoon & evening visit)

A return visit this afternoon to see what the incoming tide brought with it. The Black-tailed Godwit flock had left No.6 tank leaving the Dunlin, Ruff and Redshank behind. The Greenshank was still present in the shallow waters and c30 Common Teal were close into the bank with many Tufted Duck, Mallard and Common Shelduck. Out on the water was a lonesome Mute Swan.

I then made my way to the River Weaver where double figure Common Sandpiper and Ringed Plover were along the waters edge. A Dunlin with a metal ring on its leg was also with them.

On my way off the marsh a Sparrowhawk was sat on a garden fence watching the abundant House Sparrow flocking together.

Observer and images: Paul Ralston.
