It's been a hectic week here at northward hill but along with the stress of the residential volunteers chainsaw and AVT exams we have had some fantastic sightings. Currently we have had a surprise visit of 3000-3500 black tailed godwits! Although this wader has been successful in recent years and is now commonly seen, a flock this large is very unusual. They can be viewed from the marshland viewpoint, although at first you might mistake them for another island!
Recently seen at Cliffe pools:
Hopefully the sightings will be just as good next week!
