Black-tailed Godwit – 20th September

This morning there was a female Wheatear on the fence beside the Deep Pit and a Black-tailed Godwit was on the Slurry Lagoon, until two hot-air balloons flushed everything off. There was a light passage of Swallows, some Meadow Pipits and Siskins with one or two Skylarks.  PS.

In the afternoon a Greenshank stopped briefly and a Hobby was seen hawking dragonflies.  RW.

Whinchat – 31st August

This morning there was a Spotted Flycatcher in the willows at the river end of the Boundary Hedge. A Greenshank flew over the Slurry Lagoon but did not stay. In the afternoon three Whinchats spent  some time feeding along the Ouse Dyke bank at the back of the Wader Scrape and the Lancaster Bomber visiting the  Gedling Show flushed two Snipe from the Slurry Lagoon as it flew over the site.
