Radipole RSPB Reserve, Weymouth
Saturday July 30th 2016
With the very low water levels at Radipole coinciding with the first wave of autumn migrants the waders have returned to the lake in force.
In particular record numbers of green sandpipers have been using the mud in front of the north hide this week, with up to seven or eight at times.
The lush vegetation does make them very hard to see though, as this video shows.
But then, I expect that's why they choose this end of the reserve.
Now and again a rather more slender, speckly bird joins them - a wood sandpiper.
There are also a few black-tailed godwits with them.
I haven't got round to filming them yet, but here's one I filmed in May.
