This week at Northward Hill

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:

  • Yellow Wagtail
  • Stonechat
  • Brent Goose
  • Spotted Redshank
  • Pintail
  • Green Sandpiper

Hopefully the sightings will be just as good next week!
