This morning I duly assembled myself early at Deeping Lakes in anticipation of a filming session with our video genius, Jake Kindred. After yesterday evening’s slim pickings, it was encouraging to see evidence of a bit of ‘movement’ with a new-in eclipse drake Pintail, a few eclipse Wigeon and a surge of new Shovelers, all on the east pit. Also there, were a new Ringed Plover, 4 Little Ringed Plovers, Green Sandpiper and a couple of Common Sandpipers.
There were also still 8 Swifts flying around. Later a Peregrine came buzzing through. In all, I recorded 63 species, which is not bad for this small site!
