21st July Wombwell Ings

High evaporation rates in the last couple of weeks have caused the flash to shrink quite a bit. The shallow water is proving attractive to Little Egrets(6) and Grey Herons(4). The Greenshank that dropped in at 9.30am was my first of this autumn migration. Also present were 4 Mute Swan, 29 Canada Geese, 20 Greylag, 45 Mallard, 1 Gadwall, 1 Shoveler. 12 Coot, 5 Moorhen, 25 Lapwing, 2 Oystercatcher, 2 Little Ringed Plover, 32 BH Gull, 2 LBB Gull, 3 Pied Wagtail and 4 Linnet.
