BLACK-WIT still clinging on

I am currently testing a hypothesis that the amount of exposed mud is inversely proportional to the number of waders present. I suspect that the hypothesis will be proven to a Confidence Interval of greater than 95%.

The mud on the western edge of West Pool is now up to 15 metres wide, but there were still only the Black-tailed Godwit, 8 Snipe and a handful of Lapwing present, and the BTG and 4 of the Snipe weren't even on the mud!! Also 23 Teal, 22 Shoveler, 5 Sand Martin and 2 rather late Swift.On Park Mead a charm of 50 Goldfinches (Alan Reynolds)
