A brief visit to Hilgay in early July came up trumps with migrating waders and breeding duck.

There was also greenshank, green sandpiper, oystercatcher, a small flock of lapwing, two avocets and redshank onsite. Later in the week another observer saw 20 ruff and 10 black-tailed godwit. In birdwatching terms the autumn migration is now in full swing!
