Today's highlights were - a Spoonbill, 4 Garganey, an Osprey fly over, Whinchat and Spotted Flycatcher. 146 species recorded on the reserve so far this year.
Highlights were 5 Wood Sandpipers, the lingering Great Egret and an elusive Redstart in North Pit. Lots of warblers on the move to sift through.
A few more waders around, inc. 8 Green Sandpipers, plus a Great Egret fishing in the Cam, a Bittern failing to hide in the Cam Washes and an early Wigeon joining the moulting wildfowl.
I watched 19 Little Egrets, together with 4 immature Grey Herons, a Common Tern & 2 Kingfishers all trying to catch the fish in the dyke in front of the hide.
