Up at the hide doing some repairs this morning with Geoff S so not a lot of time for birding though at least 5 single Curlews went west along with a few Swifts. We were alerted by other wader calls around 10:50 and 2 Black - tailed Godwits came through, briefly flying around the reservoir obviously looking towards the possibility of dropping in to rest and feed. They looked fantastic in flight, still in summer plumage. With little shoreline to tempt them in they soon left going high to the west.
6 Tufted Duck
A few Swallows
 Meadow Pipits feeding young
1 Moorhen
1 Kestrel
Also with the help of Steve D we finished the task in hand and the hide is up and running again with just one or two minor jobs to finish off sometime.

Good do on the Blackwits.
My last locals were 4 at Cold Edge 27/06/2004. By coincidence, same date.

Well done on the hide, all who volunteered
