This evening the Garganey was still on the EcoPark pool with one Knot, two Green Sandpipers and 13 Lapwings. RW.
A Green Sandpiper was again feeding in the shallow water in front of the reeds on the extreme left of the Slurry Lagoon and a single Black-tailed Godwit was sleeping among the roosting ducks. Again about 600 Lesser Black-backed Gulls were divided between the wet and dry ends of the Slurry. JMD.
The Green Sandpiper was heard calling early in the afternoon as it left the Slurry Lagoon. Later there were five Black-tailed Godwits feeding and resting on the Slurry Lagoon, in the shallow water. There were also about six hundred Lesser Black-backed Gulls and the female Pochard still has all three ducklings. PS.
A Wood Sandpiper was seen briefly this afternoon on the Slurry Lagoon, a Redshank and a Yellow-legged Gull were also present. At the north end of the Slurry Lagoon there was an Essex Skipper along with three male and one female Long-winged Coneheads.
Later in the afternoon an adult Mediterranean Gull, three juvenile Little Ringed Plovers and two Shoveler visited the Slurry Lagoon. RW.
