Saturday 30th august Ingrebourne Valley

The water levels on the scrape are receding quicker than I thought and with the hot weather expected next week and a steady flow of migrants we could have some good surprises in store.  No one saw the Whinchats today,  but 2 Spotted Flycatchers were very active near the iron bridge all day,  a Yellow Wagtail was with the Cattle next to the viewing area this morning,  up to 5 Black-Tailed Godwits were still about the back scrape as were a number of Snipe,  the Kingfishers are seen daily fishing in and around the Scrape,  plenty of Warblers are moving through and the Hobby was again seen today,  lots of wildfowl are beginning to arrive with 1 or 2 Garganey being picked out,  keep a lookout for Redstarts,  the ploughed field next to the glades has a number of wagtails in it, worth a look,  while the top paddock with more horses this year looks good and could produce more migrants,  Wheatears and Yellow Wags have been seen there this last week.
