Smallways Lake, 2 Greenshank and 3 Avocet. One of the Avocet had a yellow leg Flag but it was too far away to note numbers/letters.

Smallways Lake: Avocet 3, Snipe 18 and several Ruff were seen and a Grasshopper Warbler was calling close to the white gate.

Thanks to George the farmer a jcb was dredging the drainage channel from the lake to reduce the water levels. This should produce ideal wader habitat.

Hi Jackie, it won't be Rough Leg at this time of year. If the white patch was very noticeable has he checked Harris Hawk?
