Out on the reserve, Mum and I made our way to the three central hides. On the way, we saw a flock of meadow pipits struggling in a strong wind as they made their way to a field next to us one by one. At the hides, avocets and godwits were a plenty on the pools, but there were wigeon, shoveler, dunlin, shelduck and lapwing amongst them too. Some of the godwits have turned red, their breeding plumage and they stand out from the crowd. Brent geese flew over in large flocks, though the numbers compared to last time is much less, as most will have already begun the great journey back to their breeding grounds to the Arctic Russian Tundra. A kestrel was also seen hovering in the distance, before eventually flying past the hide we were in, chased by lapwings.
