Monday 23rd April 2012 - Afternoon

Shoveler remain...

A bit of a lull in proceedings after the excesses of Friday but still a smattering of interesting birds to be seen.

A handful of Common Terns now on site with two dozing out on the spit, a chance we may see breeding again this year.

The Wagtail flock appears to have thinned out slightly but still for Yellow Wagtails and one White Wagtail seen.

Less waders than Friday but a flash of white wingbar signalled a Ringed Plover is still on site as well as the resident Oystercatchers, Redshank, Lapwing and Little Ringed Plovers. Four Little Egret also on site, whilst the Shoveler pair also remain amongst a handful of Teal, Tufted Duck and Gadwall.

One pair of Common Buzzards continue to rule the roost in the centre of the site.
