It was a fantastic morning as regards the weather, really warm and wall to wall blue sky.
When I arrived at the flood John was already there, and nothing to report. there wasn't a great deal about apart from a few Black-headed gulls and Common gulls. Then suddenly John shouted geese and 3 were flying in they were Pink footed a first for the flood. Soon after this Roy joined us another local birder and He had seen Raven and Dipper further down Thacka. Next 6 Snipe flew in and settled in the usual place amongst the sedge.
In the afternoon I went up to the flood again and found at least a dozen Snipe two of which are in the poor pic. above also a couple of Pied wagtails.
