A brief early afternoon look at the New Diggings saw the 2 Slavonian grebes and a Black-necked Grebe. The only news from the reserve was that the Tundra Bean Goose is still present and that there are plenty of Sedge Warblers now in. The Pied Flycatcher and Redstarts were still at the north end of the Long Pits today.
