An excellent 3 hours under the roof at the viewing platform at Conder Pool yesterday, made the wet and windy conditions easier to deal with.
The videos that follow will be better Viewed Full Screen....Hopefully!
Todays count of 19 Avocet - 18 in the video - demoted my 16 on 18 March into second place.
Other notes include, it was good to find the Little Ringed Plover on the pool again this year. There was a count of c.250 Black-tailed Godwit, some in advanced stunning orange-rufous summer plumage, they were accompanied by 3 Bar-tailed Godwit, 65 Knot, and a single Dunlin.
A Ruff presented itself and pleased everyone as it stayed around the end of the island for a while. A Greenshank was also obliging and paid a visit to the creeks before returning to Conder Pool. Also noted, up to 80 Redshank, 3 Stock Dove, at least 15 Pied Wagtail, and a lone Swallow - my first - took centre stage as it flew across the pool flying north.
