This morning the scrape had about 50 Godwits, but no sign of the other species noted by Rob yesterday. Kingfisher and Grey Wagtail in the reserve, with a large party of Long-tailed Tits with several Blue and a couple of Coal Tits. A few (5) Greenfinches marks the start of them arriving here for the winter, after a single female was ringed on Saturday.
Had another visit to the scrape this evening and found more Godwits (70+) but again nothing else, but after a while, the flock increased to 90 with a single Knot. No sign of the Spoonbill. But 2 female-type Marsh Harriers over Sherpa reed-bed. A flock of several hundred Golden Plover was seen over the estuary in the distance.
