Quiet, with very little water at Marshside now....these four Snipe were feeding at the Hesketh Road end of Marshside One.
They were in the three remaining bits of water under the new platform, where Wigeon and Teal manked about in eclipse plumage.
Willow Warbler, Whitethroat and Greater 'Pecker around there too.
Golf Course quiet, a few small groups of Meadow Pipits and hirundines, no dragonflies.
There was a Greenshank on the Sandplant pools, where five more Snipe dropped in.
Small groups of Linnets, Goldfinch and Greenfinch, and from the top of Mount Baker Pete Allen and I had juv Marsh Harrier, Peregrine with prey and distant Grey Plover, Golden Plover, Lapwings etc out on the sands of the estuary.
Parties of Swifts zooming through, but it got so muggy I called it a day at midday and headed for the hills.
Phil Smith had a Yellow Winged Darter in the dunes during the week - keep your eyes peeled if you're down that way!
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
