A 40 minute watch from the fishing boats this morning was very slow with 2 Great skuas the highlights. A wander around the boats and sea containers was equally unproductive.
On the reserve 3 Goosanders on Burrowes with a minimum of 7 Great White Egrets, 2 Little Egrets, 2 adult Yellow-legged Gulls, a Black-necked Grebe, also many each of the common wildfowl.
From Dengemarsh 2 Cattle Egrets, c50 Golden Plover, 3 Marsh Harriers and 2 Curlew of note. Water Rail and Cetti's Warblers were calling all round the reserve, a Great Spotted Woodpecker was by Scott Hide, 2 Tree Sparrows and a Sparrowhawk by Dennis's. On ARC from the Screen the red head Smew, a Slavonian Grebe, 2 more Great White Egrets and the usual wildfowl.
Late afternoon on Burrowes from makepiece 2 Cattle Egrets were flying into the the Cormorant roost, but veered off at the last moment and flew the length of Burrowes across the New Diggings and into the Sallows at the south end of the ARC to roost.
