My First Day of Retirement

2nd Summer Med Gull with young?

 At the ARC Pit this morning the highlights were 5 Black-tailed Godwits, 9+ Little Egrets, 1 Dunlin, 2 Cuckoo's, 3 Hobbys 2+ LRPs and 6 Sand Martins through. The water level at Carters Flood, Pett is high at the moment, consequently the only waders there today was 2 Avocet. A Hobby was hunting from a Hawthorn to the left of the hide until the regular Little Owl saw it off. Pett Pools hels 33 Black-tailed Godwits and an Avocet. At Rye Harbour the Gull and Tern Colonies are full of young.  On The Ternery Pool young Med Gulls were all round so appear to have had a good season.  The pair of Common Gulls appear to have been flooded out. A Turtle Dove was purring on the reserve and Skylarks appeared to be numerous.
