Re: Meare Heath Scrape

Fairly normal stuff first thing this morning on the scrape (but still great!):
A few Green Sand, 2 Greenshank, 6 Ruff, 2 Garganey, etc.

No terns on Noah's and didn't get to Ham Wall.

Re: Meare Heath Scrape

Late morning to early afternoon today...

5 or 6 Ruff, 1 or 2 Greenshank, a couple of Green Sand, 1 Knot, 1 Garganey, 2 Water Rail, good numbers of Blackwit, Lapwing, Snipe, etc.

Tom Raven found the Cattle Egret early morning on the scrape, this from Birdguides: one from 06:50-07:15 when it flew off northwest

Ham Wall 2VP:
1 or 2 Green Sand, 1 Ringed Plover, 1 Ruff, a few Blackwit, 1 Garganey. It's crying out for a Pec Sand...
