Great White Egret at Denge Marsh this morning
As my car is in the garage until tomorrow afternoon, MH picked me up this morning. Our first stop was at Cooks Pool, Boulderwall where the Ring-necked Duck was still present but distant.
Next stop Denge Marsh hide as the rain became more persistent, there we saw Marsh Harrier, Common Buzzard, 4 Great White Egrets 1 of which landed right in front of us, 17 Great Crested Grebes were present plus the usual wildfowl, while in the bushes a Cetti's Warbler was making it's self heard.
From Firth hide 100s of Gulls, I had just found an adult Caspian Gull when all the Gulls and 100s of Lapwings took flight for apparently no reason, the 3 Black-tailed Godwits were still there as was a female Goosander. The rest of my day was taken up with domestic stuff.
