A mixed bag at the flood

Exocet Cuckoo, St,Mary's Scilly's
Had a look in at the flood yesterday, Lapwing numbers down with only about 20 and even less Mallard, although late afternoon they were beginning to flock in again. However there was a Kestrel sat on pole, 3 Stock Dove, 1 Meadow Pipit, and a Grey Wagtail, and the Juv. Dunlin was still with us, milling about with the Lapwings.
       I had a walk up this morning with the Westies, and Lapwing numbers were up again with possibly over 200, good numbers of Mallard and Starling, also 2 Snipe, and a brief spell of sun showed their plumage off great.
