Back to the Murk!

 Late Swallow at Scotney!
A very murky morning started with the Cattle Egrets sitting on the roof of the cow shed viewed from my balcony, then downstairs for a full English.
At Scotney a late Swallow hawking over the main lake and a Kingfisher by the conveyor. From the layby the 2 usual feral Barnacle Geese flocks with c600 Greylags and few each of Golden Plover and Lapwing. 
 Bedraggled in the mist!
On the reserve 4 Great White Egrets on Burrowes and 2 more at Boulderwall. c500 Wigeon on Burrowes, 20+ Pintail but little else of note.
At the ARC 2 Bewick Swans resting on the lake was the highlight. In the Willow Trail 3 Chiffchaffs with the Long-tailed Tit flock.
This afternoon on the beach with Mick and Richard a 1w Caspian Gull, a 2w was seen before I arrived. In the roost an adult Yellow-legged Gull.
