Wanlip Meadows 6th July 2008

Spent a couple of hours down at Watermead CP North and Wanlip Meadows LRWT on Sunday.

Here is a list of birds I saw down the Soar Valley.

Wanlip Meadows LRWT:
28 Black-tailed Godwits feeding on the scrape until 12.40pm, when the majority were flushed by a Peregrine. Other waders on the scrape included 7 Green Sandpipers, 7 Little Ringed Plovers, 2 Ringed Plovers, 1 Dunlin and 1 Redshank.

Opposite the plover hide, a Grasshopper Warbler was still calling in nearby vegetation.

Watermead CP North:
I noted that at least 10 nest holes were occupied in the Sand Martin bank.
