Another rainy/snowy/sleety morning, this time I had a look at Cantley, just a brief look from the pump-house overlooking the pools which were particularly swollen.
The pools were positively hooching with 1 ringed plover (patch yr tick), 142 black tailed godwits, 91 curlew and
115 Dunlin, as well as 15+ Ruff, returning oystercatchers and redshanks and the common duck species...and a short eared owl over Claxton.
An unpleasant morning for weather but was great to be watching that number of waders on the patch, shame there wasn't something a little better on offer- a Grey plover would have been a bit of patch gold! Still can't turn my nose up at another patch yeartick in the form of a Ringo.
