The new bay carved out by the recent storms opposite Jarmans.
After yesterdays Gull glut, this morning there was barely a Gull to be seen, so I took the oppotunity for an early morning visit to Hookers. On the way 2 Black-necked Grebes were at the south end of the New diggings, at Boulderwall 6+ Tree Sparrows and a Great White Egret, from the viewing ramp several Bearded Tits, 2 Marsh Harriers, another Great White Egret, a Bittern, Cetti's Warblers were very vocal as was several Water Rails, 100s of Lapwing and Golden Plovers were constantly spooked by the Harriers and a Common Buzzard.
A wander up to The Pines with MH saw of note 3+ Chiffchaffs, a party of Long-tailed Tits, 4 Common Snipe, a fly over Bittern and 2 more Marsh Harriers.
At Scotney on the grass 2 Curlew, 6 Ringed Plovers which I think are the first of the year at this site, also 100+ Greylags and 40 Barnacle Geese but little else.
From Springfield Bridge this afternoon of note a Bittern, Great White Egret and more Marsh Harriers.
