Goldcliff Lagoons

Fri 23rd Oct 2020

Main sighting: Cetti's Warbler

A Cetti’s Warbler was calling frequently from behind the Snipe platform and another in the hedgerow across the field from the Redshank platform. A Chiffchaff was calling, not contact calling, a proper ‘Chiffchaff’ call from the car park area. Very little on the lagoons with the raised water levels so I was surprised to see a flock of 100+ Dunlin which flew over Monk’s but eventually settled on Prior’s where the ‘island’ usually appears. There were also about 8 Curlew and 20 Lapwings and a couple of Curlew Sandpipers were mixed in with the Dunlin..
