While walking towards the second hide this evening, I heard a bird (pretty certain it was a wader) calling at least four times. Not knowing exactly what it was I was keen to get to the hide as quick as possible to see it! Sadly when I got to the hide there was nothing out of the ordinary to be seen, however a gentleman in the hide told me that someone who was in the hide about an hour ago had seen what he thought was a Knot! When I got home, I went though all of my wader calls on the computer, and the closest I could get to it was the flight call of Knot! Who knows? A Knot was also reported at Coed y Dinas yesterday.
The Oystercatchers downstream from the second hide now have 3 very small chicks, lets hope the make it through to adulthood.
