LITTLE EGRETS reach new high

This morning there was a light north-easterly and it was grey and overcast – often good for waders, alas not much new on that front. However, I managed to count 19 Little Egrets (just had a text from Steve Rodwell to say he had 21 yesterday). When I got to the hide four juv Greenshanks and a juv Redshank were close on the mud on the right. Also from there I was able to see a juv Mediterranean Gull over with the Black-headed Gulls and Little Egrets in front of the reeds to the left of the stream.

Also a party of Spotted Flycatchers in the trees bordering Rushy Meadow – passerines are definitely on the move (Roy Hargreaves)
