Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud

Gill Smart, SWT

Knockshinnoch Lagoons has plenty of exposed mud at the moment. We lowered the sluices and cleared the vegetation earlier this month to attract the waders in to in front of the hide. I was there today and believe I saw a Black-tailed Godwit. It would be nice to have that confirmed by a “proper birder”. There were also more than 50 Teal and 4 Snipe. I’m sure there were other good things there that the more trained eye would have spotted.
