We are in a position once again to start removing some of the water from Purfleet Scrape and the incredible heat of the last few days we help us further.  Still seems very wrong to be talking about deliberately losing water in July but hey ho....! Whimbrel are now up to seven and two Turnstone and some Dunlin have been on the foreshore while both Little Ringed Plover and Green Sandpiper were heard on Tuesday night whilst we were on our nocturnal visit!
