Trip to Frampton Marsh

31 August 2022

Just a very brief summary of today’s visit to Frampton Marsh.

A super morning becoming very warm after a cooler start. The target today was waders; they didn’t disappoint!

Water levels were down and most of the birds were restricted to the west section of the reserve. About 2000 Black-tailed Godwits were an impressive sight, particularly when spooked and they took to the air.

We clocked up 49 species for the trip which included 16 wader species comprising Avocet (50+), Oystercatcher (5), Little Ringed Plover (lots), Ringed Plover (lots), Lapwing, Little Stint (3+), Curlew Sandpiper (5+), Dunlin (lots), Pectoral Sandpiper (1), Ruff (numerous), Snipe (numerous), Black-tailed Godwit, Curlew (1), Spotted Redshank (8+), Redshank (5+) and Greenshank (3+).

Other notable species – 45 Spoonbills, numerous Yellow Wagtails, Kestrel, Sparrowhawk, Swift
