Conder/Morecambe Bay

Conder/Morecambe Bay

Quick visit to Conder green on rising tide (14:15-14:40). Pool was very quiet (didn't see anything more exciting than mallards), although there was a flock of about 12 LT tits in the bushes beside it (no interlopers seen).

Creek sightings included:
2 spotshank
2 grey heron
about 80 teal (hard to get an accurate count, as they were very mobile)
1 snipe (on the bend nearest the Stork hotel)

A mixed flock of tits seen near picnic area end of the bridge, but no goldcrest or yellow-brows.

Also saw a female sparrowhawk, chasing a finch-like passerine, as i was driving off.


Took the "scenic route" back, leading to:

6 eider (1m) and 2 goldeneye (m,f) near Broadway junction

about a dozen knot at teal bay, mixed in with the usual oiks (roughly 2000 of those, but I didn't try for a particularly accurate count).
