Blacktoft Again

Friday 1st July

Seem to be spending most of my time here of late and found myself heading here again this morning, hoping to catch up with some waders.

First up was Marshland Hide, 13 Spotted Redshanks (203), a large flock of Black tailed Godwits and a couple of Little Egrets.

I then headed down to Townend Hide but there was no sign of the Green Sands, stayed for a while, then headed to Singleton but no waders at all, so went back to Townend to sit and wait. Both birds had been seen earlier this morning so I knew they were about, probably just on the back of one of the islands and out of sight. Sure enough, after being spooked by a Lapwing, one of the Green Sandpipers (204), flew out and landed in front of the hide. Also had a nice Hobby do a complete circuit of the reedbed.
