This afternoon at Slimbridge WWT there was a total of 26 Green Sandpipers around the hides (above) (12 on the Tack Piece, three on the Knott Pool and 11 on the Top New Piece); also on the Top New Piece two Little Ringed Plovers, two Greenshanks, a Dunlin, a Little Egret and 7 Redshanks, including the fledgling, on South Lake 45 Black-tailed Godwits and 68 Redshanks and a Lesser Whitethroat at the Decoy. Broods of Tufted Duck were on the Top New Piece and near Martin Smith Hide (below).

This evening, Mark brought round this Poplar Hawk Moth (below) a colleague had found at his workplace along the Bristol Road.
