Despite all the recent negative comments about how rubbish the Island Hide is and how the reserve has been ruined by the works, the birds were fantastic this evening. 2 garganey, 2 spotted redshank, 5 ruff, 2 black-tailed godwit and 20+ teal all feeding within 20m of the Island Hide. The only thing disturbing them is the idiot photographers who insist on going off the paths to the bottom on the bank to get better shots and flushing them all.....no need!

Even though it was dark and windy, I got these acceptable digiscoped shots of the garganey and spotshank today.

On a lighter note, hopefully the wandering white-tailed eagle will come over the reserve in the next few days. Watch this space.

Rant over for today!!
