Waiting For Godwit


July 31st: It's been a long time coming, but a couple of hours at the Dams this evening in dull conditions happily produced the desired result.


With water levels dropping encouragingly and waders on the move, the hope of a long-legged visitor came good in the shape of this moulting but mainly summer-plumaged Black-tailed Godwit; hopefully the harbinger of more activity at this small but perfectly-formed wetland over the coming weeks.
