Cracking male grey-headed wagtail and a few white wags on the fresh marsh this evening but all of the dunlin and most of the godwits have now moved on.

This is probably the first (need to check the records tomorrow) confirmed breeding record of pintail for the reserve. Pretty jammy to get it as the grey headed wag dropped onto the edge of the fresh marsh and I noticed her moving along the edge with 5 duckings. It has been a good week for new breeding species as I had a coal tit carrying food in Willow Wood last week which again is the only confirmed breeding record I can find.

Avocet chicks all over the place now and can melt even the hardest of hearts - they are so cute!
