Early morning at the ARC 5 Garganey, Black-necked Grebe, Red-crested Pochard(female), 2 Water Rail, 6 Golden Plover, 4 Redshank, 3 Dunlin, a Greenshank, 3 Marsh Harriers and several 100s of Sand Martins.
At the Patch in the company of Mark http://chiddysbirding.blogspot.co.uk/ there were plenty of Gulls and Terns to sift through, Mark picked out the only juvenile Yellow-legged Gull among the masses of juvenile Herring and Lesser Black Backed Gulls. Also there 2+juvenile Mediterranean Gulls, 7 Great-crested Grebes and a Grey seal. By the car park 2 Wheatears and a Peregrine.
Between Galloways and Dengemarsh 2 Wheatears and a Whinchat, on Dengemarsh a Great White Egret, it or a second bird was on Burrowes per CT.
http://birdingthedayaway.blogspot.co.uk/ and Richard Smith http://mybirdwatchingdaysout.blogspot.co.uk/ to say a Ring Tail Harrier was hunting the fields at Ness farm. A couple of minutes later I was there and saw a juvenile Harrier that was either Montagu's or Pallid. Mick and Richard soon got bored with the Harrier and went to the fishing boats, a bird that doesn't eat fish guts and bread cannot compete loads of gulls and in a particular a pristine 1w Caspian Gull that I'm sure they will have stunning images of. After a bit wait good views of the Harrier were obtained to rule out Pallid and confirm it as a Monty's. Thanks again for the call Mick and Richard.
