After the showers

23rd May 2011, Monday

Sunday 22nd May, Started at 6.45 am, on the sea wall at the pools, with the tide going down, there was upto 120 Common Scoters on the sea (this is more than we have had through the winter!), also good numbers of terns fishing just off shore and Gannets fishing much further out. Still not much to report from the marsh, but Carters was better, with a single Whinchat,and at least 100 House Martin,a Barn Owl, 2/3 Buzzards, 6 Bl.T.Godwit, 3 Avocet. Good bird watching Pete.
