British Steel hide
Various waders can still be seen across the saline lagoons including good numbers of Black-tailed Godwit, as well as Knot, Dunlin, Greenshank and Redshank. Across the estuary 190 Teal, 250 Shelduck, and 75 Wigeon have been spotted with the high tides. There have also been various birds of prey seen including Peregrine, Sparrowhawk and Buzzard.
On the Dafen scrapes also visible from the hide Meadow Pipit, Grey Wagtail and Water Pipit have been seen recently.
Spotted on deep water lake recently have been large numbers of Gadwall and Teal, as well as Shoveler, Tufted Duck and a small number of Wigeon and Pochard. Snipe have been spread out across the Millennium wetlands recently, more often along the main paths around the reserve so keep your eyes peeled. Also from the Heron’s Wing hide keep an eye out in the trees at the far end of the lake for any Little Egret and Cormorant.
A Spoonbill that has been a frequent visitor to the site recently was clearly visible from the Observatory on Saturday, seen feeding on the freshwater lagoon.
