It is quite a long walk from where you park, and as I'd made it an evening walk the light wasn't good when the clouds came across. Luckily they came and went so that dusk was quite late. On the way I watched a Hare, in the distance running across one of the recently cropped fields.
The scrape itself has one difference to the current state of the Restharrow Scrape, it does have lots of birds., even if the back ground is more like Tees-side the sea-side.
Of course the commonest waders were Green Sandpipers, they could be heard in the ditches all the way along the rive and there were quite a few on the scrape.
The Tu Tu Tu calls of Greenshanks were constantly ringing through the air, but they seemed to tuck themselves out of sight a lot of the time. Common Sandpipers were very busy and there were also a couple of Snipe.
Just before I left I moved across to Geoff's hide. The Avocets and a few Lapwings were lining up, and seemed to be preening in readiness for roosting, so I took the hint and wandered back to the car in the gathering gloom.
