Another nice spring day though not as warm as it has been. There are still plenty of interesting birds around to see on the floods though as yet nothing to get too excited about. Pick of the bunch was 5 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER along the North Shore, together with a supporting cast of 1 RUFF, 1 REDSHANK, the 2 OYSTERCATCHERS still and a single LITTLE EGRET. On the duck front the 5 or so gadwall are still around and there are one or two lingering PINTAIL still about. A common buzzard was soaring overhead and the nuthatch has been calling away regularly over the last few days from around Medley Farm. On the Castle Mill Stream there was a single LITTLE GREBE still about. I keep forgetting to mention the STOCK DOVES which fly over in ones or two quite often when I visit.
The Little Egret this morning
