Lodmoor Saturday evening

7:15pm – 8 :15pm. Bright evening with N breeze:

All the action happened at the start and end. When I arrived, a flock of 20 Blackwit’s appeared from the distance and ended up on the main pool on the southern edge. There were a further sevenish Dunlin there, and a close-up Barwit but sadly not the brick-red variety. Finally as I was leaving three Whimbrel dropped in. In between the usual warblers (Cettis/Sedge/Lesser ‘throat), with good numbers of pied wagtails, swallows, swifts, and waterfowl.

The light was fading, so a bit of help from Photoshop needed here.
