Sunday 8th August
Paid a visit this evening after a week’s hillwalking in Scotland. With a weeks gap since my last visit, things hadn’t changed much. There were 60+ Lapwing loafing on the South shore and they were accompanied by two Common Sandpiper. With the water levels lower than they have been for a while, we may get lucky and have a few more waders this Autumn.
Warbler corner had a bit of activity with Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and Blackcap noted. Black-headed Gull numbers are building up with around 150 individuals noted.
