Morton Baggot and Upton Warren

20/08/11
A trip to Morton baggot was almost pointless, and other than this Peregrine, there was not much else about, 2 Green sandpipers were on the pools as well as a few Teal, and 86 Greylag geese were sitting in a field.

To be completly honest though, Upton was the same, and it was just standard fare and the same 'stuff' that had been around for some time.
Over all there was 9 Green Sandpipers over the reserve (2 at moors, 7 at flashes), however my largest flock of 5 Common Sandpipers was noteworthy at the flashes, with my top counts only usually being 3 birds.
A Water rail popped out the reeds for abit.
A Juv Shelduck was at the flashes, as well as 81 Lapwing , the Juv Redshank, 30 Curlew but a suprise was when i spotted a Snipe Probing the mud around the base of the reeds at the back of the 2nd flash.
2 Yellow wagtail and a Meadow Pipit flew over
