Water Pipit remains

21st October 2020 – overcast/rain/mist/murk SSE2/3
Please note that South Walney Nature Reserve is now open though the hides, visitor centre and toilets remain closed to comply with social distancing measures.
The high tide pushed a total of 21 Rock Pipit from the island's salt-marshes, amongst which was a single Water Pipit.
Grounded Migrants
Limited to 2 Blackcap and single Redwing and Fieldfare
Diurnal Migration
Another paltry showing involving 3 Siskin and 2 Swallow.
Wildfowl and Waders
Wildfowl included 53 Pintail and 15 Greenshank were the pick of the waders.
The long-staying Hooded Crow continues to linger and a single Water Rail was the best of the rest.
