Usual good numbers of waders; 1000 golden plover 300+ black tailed godwits, little stint, knot, dunlin, curlew sandpiper, ruff, ringed plover and lapwing.
A jack snipe was bobbing near the gate before flying off, over the road and dropping down into the sedge and out of view. Severla clouded yellow butterflies whizzed by whilst out on the Swale mud, shelduck, black headed gulls, oystercatchers, little egrets and a lone marsh harrier. Always a super little reserve to visit.
