Low Newton 16th August

We decided to have a morning at Low Newton and arrived there early before it got too busy. Our first port of call was the flash where Greylags outnumbered all the other birds which included a Yellow Wagtail and 2 female Pintails. Next to Newton Pool where high water levels meant the was very little except for a small number of Mallard. The path along to the pool was more productive with Wall Browns, Small Coppers and a single Migrant Hawker. We then headed back along a now crowded beach and out to the point where apart from a few Sandwich  and Arctic Terns was a flock of 55 Golden Plover, a quiet day but the scenery was fantastic.
