College Lake BBOWT - Saturday morning

Unfortunately Mike Wallen's Grey Plovers didn't touch down at College this morning but there were a few migrants around. Dave Bilcock had both Common Sandpiper and Dunlin earlier.

Three Wheatears were on the chalk bench north of the main lake and a Yellow Wagtail flew over east. The Cuckoo was very vocal this morning and flew straight over at one point. Counted 52 Common Terns, at least 5 fledgling Lapwings and 6 adult Common Redshanks. Still 2 male and a female Shoveler hanging on.

Best was saved for last when I met Rosie Hamilton in the new visitor centreand we had 2 Hobbies hunting over the marsh (Rob Andrews)
