A narrow edge of mud now visible and the first? wader of the Autumn arrived this afternoon a Green Sand Piper
. One of the locally ringed this years juv Great White Egrets was present RED colour ring on left leg letters AAF . Three other Great Whites were also present one of which was the 2009 ringed French bird ORANGE over PISTACHIO.
By tomorrow if the pump doesn’t run out of fuel there’s a chance that something new will arrive, if not we must organise a drive to get some of the invisible waders that are hiding down on Ham Wall up here ready for the weekend.
The pump has been put on today to lower the water level, the Osprey which was still on Noah’s Lake lifted off around 1450 to fish, failed on Noah’s and went to Meare Heath, it had a good look at the scrape at around 1500 but flew to the back of Meare Heath towards the Piggeries. It will get a surprise if it tries it’s luck there tommorrow.
