How is it 20th September all ready? Blimey this year is wizzing by!
Anyhoo... Here's some wildlife highlights for the day:
a brilliant 84 lapwings at the Draper hide
a kingfisher was seen flying round the lagoon seen from the Tern Hide
teal numbers are growing now
there are quite a few shovelers showing as well
there was a great view of a snipe from the Draper Hide earlier.
The volunteers have been busy today - they have moved the CCTV cameras (that were out at the Kingfisher Hide and the Gadwall Hide) onto the lagoon that can be seen from the Tern Hide and the Draper Hide. When you next come into the Visitor Centre you will be able to see the lagoon and scrape - should be good as the wildfowl numbers are increasing. Don't forget that we are recording the waders that we see so if you see any waders when you are at Rye Meads let me know (for more information about why we are recording the waders click here)
