Its been an incredible few days for waders around the reserve, 22 species so far. This morning 34 Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Ruff and 2 Curlew Sandpipers were feeding around the flooded fields at the northern end of Castle Water. A Peregrine and 200+ Swallow were also of note. On the Beach Reserve the Kentish Plover showed well again very close to Lime Kiln Cottage, a good selection of waders are still feeding on the new saltmarsh area a Temminck’s Stint, 2 Little Ringed Plover and a Curlew Sandpiper provided additional interest this morning. More details on waders seen here by clicking here.
