More Egrets!

08.50-09.50 from the fishing boats:
Brent: 11 up
Red-throated Diver: 10 down    4 up
Fulmar: 1 down
Gannet: 129 down
Oystercatcher:  3 up   3 down
Kittiwake:   129 down
Auk:  3 up
The rest of the morning taken up with domestic stuff.
This afternoon the Cattle Egrets were still in the fields south of Brickwall Farm.
At Scotney the drake Scaup still but no wild geese, I was unable to find the 3 Black-necked Grebes but there were at least 2 on New Excavations,
On Walland all the wild Swans present and correct.
Late afternoon at the reserve in the company of DW and GH watching the Egrets come in to roost.
9 Great-white Egrets and a minimum of 23 Little Egrets roosted, a party of 3 Cattle Egrets came in and a few minutes later another 2. It was very dark and they did come in quickly so we may have made a mistake, so it looks like my early evenings are going to be booked for the near future.
