Goldcliff

Main Sighting: Spotted Redshank
From the first hide and dropping into an otherwise empty lagoon as I arrived a pair of Spotted Redshank which were still there at dusk so feeding here for at least 3.5 hours! i haven't seen a single raptor today which must have helped them to feel secure. The Black Redstart was seen by a birder i met on the way to the coast apparently flitting between the farm path and the sea wall but not by me or a visitor from Gloucestershire I met on the sea wall. The two Redshank are the exception to an otherwise waderless scenario the lagoons being filled with Canada Geese, Wigeon, Shoveller, Shelduck and Teal.
