Obviously this morning was never going to be as good as yesterday, and indeed it wasn’t. However it wasn’t bad.
There was an Oystercatcher flying round calling soon after I arrived and the female Marsh Harrier was up over the reedbed by the boathouse at 5:50. I also had a Dunlin on the edge between the Jetty and North Corner. A Little Egret was roosting in the bushes in the centre and nine Arctic Terns dropped in, with five leaving after a short time. Hirundine numbers were also well down on yesterday’s figures (Roy Hargreaves)
