In a walk from Cliff End to Castle Water yesterday we found 84 bird species including Brent & Whitefronted (but no Pinkfooted) Geese, 2 Bitterns, Woodcock, Ruff, Green Sandpiper, Goldeneye, Pintail, Water Rail, Marsh Harrier, Med Gull and Bearded Tit.
Large numbers of Song Thrushes, Blackbirds and Redwings were arriving at Toot Rock as the mist cleared and, as mentioned in yesterday’s post, Dunlin were widely distributed as well as Snipe.
