Still relatively quiet from a wader point of view - a few ringed plover & dunlin up on this mornings tide and still greenshank & green sandpiper about. Low tide on the Swale produced grey & golden plover, bar-tailed godwit & knot + lots of little egrets.
The first stonechat of the autumn was near Counterwall hide & there was still one whinchat & a wheatear, with chiffchaff & reed warbler at Kingshill Farm. Raptors included at least 2 buzzard and a couple of peregrine, with one putting on a fine show attempting to take a starling from a wheeling flock.
This will be my last posting for a week or so, but hopefully Nat can keep you informed about what's about on the reserve.
