After emptying the moth trap this morning and finding very little to get excited over, I went to the sea watch hide. Looking towards The Patch not a ripple from the boil also no Terns or Gulls, but 13 Great-crested Grebes were enjoying feeding in the calm at The Patch. Personally I can't wait for the reactor to be switched back on.
2 Spoonbills at Scotney
In 2 visits to Scotney GP today 2 Spoonbills were roosting on an island on the back lake, also there 15 pairs of Avocets, a single pair of Common Terns, 3 Ringed Plovers, a Little Ringed Plover, 5 Little Egrets and the usual wild fowl. Over the fields numerous Swifts, while in the fields Yellow Wagtails and Corn Buntings calling all around, several Tree Sparrows at the Sussex end and 3+ Marsh Harriers. An Egyptian Goose was on the main lake, but little else of note.
