Two Tree Island

August 4th

A quick visit to catch the high tide gathering produced some good birds with the most notable being a Curlew Sandpiper. Only seen briefly amongst the hordes of Black Tailed Godwits it was still retaining some summer plumage.
The numbers of Black Tailed Godwits have really increased, I would say they are already up above the 800 mark, many were still out on the Creek.

Good numbers of Redshank were also seen along with 7 Greenshank.

Star performer goes to a juvenile peregrine trying to flush all into flight with several passes; it is a tactic they use quite a lot.
