Yesterday was not spectacular but did have some interesting events. I managed to see four juvenile Water Rail along the edge of the reeds between Cemetery Corner and the Boathouse. Also managed to see one of the home-grown juv Little Egrets – at last! Also two Little Ringed Plover, a Common Sandpiper and a Green Sandpiper.
In the evening I could see 17 Little Egrets – most roosting in a tree by the trees that the Cormorants use. Also the field south of Cemetery Corner has been harvested and there were five Foxes and two Muntjac running around on it. Also an adult Common Gull flew off.
Also saw a Little Owl at Miswell Farm in the usual tree.
This morning there was not much – heard Green Sandpiper and saw Common Sandpiper and 15 Little Egrets were visible (Roy Hargreaves)
