No Change!

Driving to The Point this morning the usual Great White Egret could be seen on the New Diggings.
This mornings sea watch was only notable for a flock of c150 Swallows feeding low over the sea c400mts out, also 2 Grey Wagtails that briefly alighted on the power station filter beds before heading off to France.
The daily plod around The Point and The Desert in the warm sunshine was truly unremarkable avian wise.
At the ARC a work party was doing much needed work cutting Sallows, so much disturbance and little to be seen.
Sitting on the beach at the fishing boats this afternoon in the sun and a warm breeze for 90 minutes was very pleasant, but avian wise it was a rerun of yesterday, with the same single Black Tern, Little Gull, Arctic Tern and 2+ Arctic Skuas, along with offshore c30 Gannets, c30 Sandwich Terns and c20 Common Terns.
Early evening on the reserve found little of note on Burrowes, but 4 Great White Egrets at Dengemarsh.

Clifden Nonpareil unfortunately not in the Plodland trap but one of two in Bernard and Andil's Ruckinge trap this morning. Many thanks for bringing it to the Obs this morning.
