Edderthorpe, Monday am

Managed a few counts before the predicted rain came in at about 09.30. Little Stint 2 juveniles, Grey Plover 1, Dunlin 17, Ruff 2, Golden Plover- small flocks were dropping in all the time until a adult Peregrine came in causing the usual mayhem for about ten minutes. Although many of the waders scattered, the wildfowl came out of the vegetation and I was able to get some counts;- Teal 544, Gadwall 21, Wigeon 41, Shelduck 3. A Common Buzzard came over low just as the rain started and it wasn't long before the rain turned very heavy and I left.
