Lazy Day

Having a lay in and fried breakfast this morning meant when I arrived at The Point, I'd missed the 2 Snow Buntings that put in a brief appearance there, but I did eventually get a distant view of the 2w Glaucous Gull feeding among the bait diggers after its short sojurn elsewhere. With very little else except Great crested Grebes off shore I moved to the pits.
8 Smew(2 drakes) and a Great White Egret on New Diggings and little of note on the ARC Pit.
Moving to Scotney 34 Greater White Fronted Geese among the Greylags was the highlight.
On Walland 42 Bewick Swans at Midley, 2 Marsh Harriers and a Woodcock under the Tree Sparrow bushes opposite the feeders.
