High Tide but no High Fives........

Very high tide today, was hoping to find something different, but alas it was not to be. That's not to say there wasn't anything unusual! I did see plenty of the usual Aldcliffe birds, which was well worth the effort. Freeman's Pool was quiet and not a lot happening. Wildfowlers’ Pool saw 2 Green Sandpiper. The Flood had a number of finches feeding, 6 Greenfinch and equal number of Goldfinch, along with 3 Pied Wagtail. Plenty of Swallow around, House Martins and some Swifts also present. The marsh was almost all covered by the tide. There were plenty of Greylag, Canada, Lapwing, Curlew, Redshank and six Little Egrets. Also, up to 6 Common Sandpipers. A Peregrine was spooking them all.
