That Time Of Year.

Glossy Ibis hiding in the ditches.
 From The Point this morning the sea was again quiet, not unexpected on a very light north westerly and bright sunshine.
The Black Kite probably flew over me as I chatted to OL on the approach road, as it headed towards the Lifeboat Station and quite possibly out to sea.
A plod out past the Water Tower towards The Mirrors and round the back of the airport was pleasant enough. Avian activity was represented by 2 Marsh Harriers, 2 Common Snipe,a few Meadow Pipits and the usual Corvids.
A stop off at Cockles Bridge found the Glossy Ibis in the ditch west of the track also 2 Common Buzzards and another Marsh Harrier.
At Scotney plenty of feral Geese and good numbers of common wildfowl but little of note.
Late afternoon at the ARC from Hanson a Great White Egret, 2 Little Egrets, a very showy Cetti's Warbler (pity it was nearly dark) 7 Goldeneye, a flock of 32 Curlew flew over but little else.
Hopefully sometime tomorrow a Hawk Owl twitch in Holland!
