Staffordshire Knot

Sunday 10th August, Blithfield Reservoir, 12:15 - 15:30

No not that one, this one:

Still in summer plumage. Also along the Admaston side of Blithe Bay were 25 Dunlin, 16 Ringed Plover, 1 Ruff and 2 Common Sandpiper. What a difference a week makes!

To keep up my good Osprey run, looking from the causeway one appeared over the plantation on the Tad Bay side. I'll stop using the name Ozzy now, for the benefit of the Blurred Birder's health and sanity!

Onto Tad Bay were 2 Garganey, 3 Black-Tailed Godwit and 3 more Ringed Plover. In fact one of the Garganey was feeding in the pool, that is formed as the water level recedes, to the left of the main hide in Tad Bay. Which gives a perfect opportunity for my new game, "Spot The Garganey"! Its like spot the ball, but with a Garganey. Oh, and there's no cash prize either.
