Staff here at the reserve chose a beautiful day on Thursday 22nd August 2013 to do a WEBS count on the reserve.

A good number of waders were seen including 6 Wigeon, 277 Teal, 15 Goosander, 36 Little Egrets, 186 Oystercatchers, 21 Curlew, 29 Dunlin, 34 Cormorants and 14 Black-tailed Godwits.

Many of our spring migrants are still in evidence, including Redstart, Stonechat, Sedge Warbler, Lesser Redpoll, Reed Bunting, Nuthatch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.

Butterflies anad Dragonflies include Brimstone, Common Blue, Gate Keeper and Wall Brown

So you can see we are a hive of activity, with Spring Tides prevalent at the moment.

See you soon!
