Although being a Water Pipit is a twitchable offence these days I didn’t put news of this out earlier apart from texting a couple of friends.
This working site is difficult to view. It requires climbing up a slippery 2.5-metre ‘viewing mound’ (SD460587) on the usually waterlogged track– to peer between thorns and through fencing.
That said, it often pulls in the birds and the birding was good today. You sometimes need to give it a fair bit of time (90 mins today) cos birds are often out of sight in deep tanks.
Black-headed Gull 30
Pied Wagtail 18
Grey Wagtail 7 incl. a ringed individual (L lime green over metal, R red over bottle green)
Meadow Pipit 3
Green Sandpiper 2
Water Pipit 1
Rock Pipit 1
Rock/Water Pipit calls were also heard from nearby ‘Stodday Marsh’ SD457585 SW of the picnic bench, where an adult Peregrine flew upriver.
One of two sewage tank Green Sandpipers near Stodday today (where also a Water Pipit)– click on it for full Mark Rothko effect. Also a nice soft Peregrine pic for you. Details and grid refs here: https://t.co/zmaSvj1djz pic.twitter.com/T1iGPYnUcm
