Wilson’s Phalarope - 1 - 2 records
Red-necked Phalarope - 2 - 30th April 2011
Grey Phalarope - 1 - 4 records
Further to my post from yesterday re maximum counts for each wader species I have found this updated post from Phil Andrews from 3 years ago, which includes amended totals for Black-tailed Godwit, Avocet, Jack Snipe and Redshank plus the addition of the joint record for Greenshank.

This list now requires further amendment to include (a) the Baird's Sandpiper that graced the Flashes from 9-16th September 2016; (b) the 3 Woodcock found along the Salwarpe by Pete & Marjo Lewis on 11th December 2017; (c) the ever increasing number of Avocets present during the breeding season.

According to Phil's post from 16th June 2019 Dave Jackson counted a total of 87 birds at the Flashes that morning, made up of 44 adults and 43 young. Unless anyone knows otherwise I take it that this is the new record maximum count for Avocet on the reserve!

Bird feeding Fund

Many thanks to Tim O for your kind donation to the fund..we no longer have food given to us by the local pet food supplier so all food is paid for from money raised at Upton warren.

Mumblings, Grumblings and Fly tipping.

Firstly, for those planning to visit the Moors over the next few days please be aware that due to a second incident of fly tipping recently a large amount of rubbish has been dumped at the bottom end of the car park. Until it is removed it will impact on the number of parking spaces and it is quite unpleasant if you get too close. The relevant authorities have been made aware and it will hopefully be removed early next week at the latest.

On a wider note I have heard directly and anecdotally recently of an increasing number of instances of comment/complaint about aspects of the reserve that is not to a minority of visitors liking.
These complaints are most consistently, that the feeders are not replenished often enough but also that lack of "maintenance" has impacted on photographers ability to take clear and unobstructed photographs. A regular visitor was offended recently as it seems a couple of individuals went onto the "wildlife only" part of the reserve to remove grass and place sticks for Kingfishers to use. This apparently being for the sole purpose of getting better pictures. These individuals will have walked straight past a "wildlife only past this point" sign to access that part of the reserve. Apart from the potential disruption to the wildlife it can and does upset and offend other visitors. The signs are there for a reason and this behaviour is not acceptable. All of the work at the reserve is done by UNPAID volunteers some of whom devote a lot of their own time to keep the reserve functioning and welcoming to all visitors. We do consider photographers needs when deciding on work priorities but manicuring parts of the reserve for that sole purpose is not on the agenda. Perhaps those who do complain regularly could put the same amount of energy into joining the volunteer cadre and actually contributing something now and again. Finally it was frustrating to read a comment in the North Moors sightings book today. It consisted of a comment about lack of food in the feeders accompanied by an offer to join the volunteers if it helped top them up more regularly. This individual was apparently told by someone ??? that the reserve didn't need any more volunteers !!!! Unfortunately the author of this comment left it unattributed and also failed to identify the source of the response so therefore possibly a waste of ink. If he or she reads this - all new volunteers are welcome and if helping replenish the feeders is something they wish to do as part of the existing programme, I'm sure the regulars would be grateful for the offer.

Many thanks for your comments Kim - it still amazes me those who still consider the reserve to be their private playground

This sort of thing raises its head periodically, some people will always complain about something! On the subject of Kingfisher sticks, there are plenty already in situ. The reserve can't be littered with these; take what's there or ask the work-parties to place more. Not saying they will (see my previous comment) but it's not a free-for-all and you, whoever you are, don't get to make unilateral decisions on what happens. That's what the work party team, wardens or the Trust (dependent on magnitude of the decision) are there for. Same goes for spur of the moment gardening in off-limits areas. If you don't like it go somewhere else.

As for volunteers, I'd say there can never be enough (unless you're leading a work party & far more turn up than you have work for!). If you want to volunteer to put food out then I'm quite sure those who currently carry out this task would be delighted to reduce their commitment in this area. Contact numbers can be found in the log-books in the hides or on some notices in the larger hides.

You can please some of the people some of the time etc, etc.It never fails to surprise me about the tiny majority who must have very little else to fill their empty lives.I enjoy every moment of my my visits to the reserve,It is a nature reserve after all and things keep growing, the volunteer workers do a brilliant job in all weathers and the only reward is cake!!! If John needs some help with the feeder filling please contact me for help.

I think Paul & Bob O do most of the feeder filling, so liaise with them?

That covers most of it Kim..and with the comments from Mike, Phil and Grahamjazz I can only add....that if you have any ideas or gripes about the reserve then contact one of us via phone or speak to wardens . No need to write anonymous comments in the log books.john

Black-tailed Godwit, 9 Green Sandpiper and Redstart still at the Flashes as per Carl J. Also juvenile Water Rail, juvenile Shelduck, the LRP chick still plus Swift - could all sightings of the latter be reported from now on please as the species becomes scarce from the second half of August onwards.

Tuesday Work party 20th August

With wader passage already happening we will enhance the habitat at Amy's marsh this coming Tuesday.
This will include clearing the two main shingle islands in front of the east hide.....wit the orchids well gone we will also brush cut the east shore line. If any orchids are still flowering we will avoid them.
The sluice will also be adjusted to maximise the amount of of ideal wet mud.
If you can make it we will be meeting at 9am in the Moors car park.
John 👌👍
