Saturday 6th september Ingrebourne Valley

There were at least 27 Black-Tailed Godwits on the scrapes today,  Shaun counted 15 Snipe,  he also saw a Redstart which Andy had picked up in his scope at the black bridge,   Lesser Whitethroats, Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs,  Willow Warblers,  were all to the left of the viewing area still and a Yellow Wagtail flew over.   A Green Sandpiper is still about the scrapes,  and a lone wigeon made an pleasant appearance this afternoon.    The Mute swans with their cygnets were seen today alive.  60 to 70 Lapwings were camped around the scrapes  and 50 martins were feeding over the water.

Not alone Martins
