From the wader scrape hide there were no signs of the recent passage of waders, although a Common Sandpiper put in a brief appearance. Following some recent foliage clearance a new perching place was visible. A Grey Heron took flight and landed on it, clearly using it as a viewing post. I was hoping for a spectacular dive into the water. Unfortunately it simply stood and observed everything.
In the meantime a Redshank was feeding and bathing:
Two hours later the Grey Heron was still there, although it had turned around, and was caught making some odd gestures!
