Black-tailed Godwit

One pleasing trend of recent years is the increased occurrence of Black-tailed Godwit on the reserve where they can often perform at reasonably close range. Attached are a series of charts demonstrating this pattern using three different criteria - number of days present, an estimate of the total number of individual birds occurring (a bare minimum) and a cumulative total of daily counts. I have presented this in two year tranches to try to smooth out any anomalies.

In conjunction with Phil's informative graphs .
I have noticed that frequently small groups arrive at the Flashes and then a single bird sometimes more remains whilst the bulk of the flock depart. I think the remaining bird/s act as a beacon for other passage blackwits and in human terms is probably saying stop off here #uptonwarren is a good place, safe and plenty of food.
Almost like a continuous relay race as birds leapfrog from one site to the next in their southerly movement to their wintering grounds. All conjecture and my own views, but food for thought. Haven't researched it so might look into it. I also find it strange that a gregarious species arrives en-masse but don't always leave together.

Today at FLASHES 5.20am - 1pm

A lot of passerine activity all around the Flashes literally
The hedges at the bottom of the 'brown' North field bean crop held a considerable amount of passerines. Especially finches, warblers , thrushes, tits and reed bunting. The bulk of the birds were in the two large Hawthorne, from where they were flying into the field to feed. Also holding plenty of birds were the hedges by the climbing frames, the 'confluence', the meadow hedge and the west hedgerow right of the hide where 2 redstarts were. My first wheatear for a couple of years was found by Crofty. It was perched on the stock fence gate between the 2nd and 3rd flash and then spent a good period in front of the hide. Other notnotable migration was swift moving south along with swallows and sand martin. Warblers were seemingly everywhere and in stark contrast to a year ago passerines were certainly more numerous and widespread. Waders were not as numerous as yesterday but overall the waterbirds were plentiful. There was one youngdter left from the 2nd brood of Shoveler and at least 3 of the older brood presumably the other 2 had moved off. Unfortunately the thunderstorms didn't bring the hoped for rarity..nut there's always tomorrow

Species Count FLASHES:
Little grebe 2 -3rd Flash
Little egret. Grey heron. Greylag 25. Canada's 180.

I am not sure I understand the logic of moving the cattle from the Flashes to the Moors Pool after the end of the breeding season with several weeks of growth still remaining for the phragmites and grassland.
