Tuesday 2nd August 2016

Early morning wader activity saw a flock of eight Snipe and around thirty Black-tailed Godwits flying east over the grazing marsh. On the Broadwater there were two Green and one Common Sandpiper and a Greenshank. One of the two vocal Green Woodpeckers around the reserve at the moment was trapped and ringed and the moth trap again held a nice selection of moths, which included 8 Garden Tigers and a Pine Hawkmoth.
