some movement early morning

At Wilstone the Brent Goose was still in the field and there was no sign of the Water Pipit. The two Oystercatchers turned up in front of the hide and two Redshank flew over quite high up and there was a third on the rock between the jetty and Cemetery Corner. Also a male Mandarin flew from Wilstone into Bucks and a flock of about 20 Sand Martins flew in.

Startops had two RPs and two LRPs. A flock of 16 Sand Martin flew off and the Swallow(s) with them possibly lingered or was replaced by another. The male Red-crested Pochard was asleep on a fresh barley bale (Roy Hargreaves)
