Durham Bird Club's Castle Lake Nature Reserve

Rain, Rain, Don't Go Away, Come Back Everyday...

....(from this birders point of view anyway).

Popped down again this evening to see if anything new was in but apart from a few Redshank it was pretty much business as usual.

Castle Lake
4 Teal, 1 Little Ringed Plover, 3 Ruff, 4 Dunlin, 1 Snipe, 5 Redshank, 4 Greenshank, 1 Green Sandpiper, 2 Common Sandpiper.

A1 Flashes
8 Curlew, 4 Greenshank, 2 Green Sandpiper.

These five Redshank must have dropped-in this afternoon.

 A Snipe actually made it over this side of the lake for a change.

If August continues to stay generally wet then the A1 Flashes are going to be good for waders this autumn.
