Goldcliff Lagoons

Main Sighting: Sparrowhawk
Evening visit at low tide with company from a fellow birder. Lots of birds on show. Sparrowhawk at hide 3 caused a stir across the lagoon. 9 Ruff tonight mixing it with Redshank and Black Tailed Godwits. Saw a pair of curlew (one with broken leg and at a really nasty angle), Approximately 30 Black Tailed Godwits on the mudflats with 3 Red Knots and a Curlew. The Curlew Sandpiper remains at Lagoon 3 and was in with the Dunlins. Common Sandpiper was opposite the Redshank platform at Lagoon 1. Buzzard later in the evening at Lagoon 2.
