Saturday 26th May

Another evening walk by the floods today and once again I actually found some birds to blog about. Firstly, of the stalwarts, the LITTLE EGRETS and SHELDUCK were still about though the little gulls appeared to have moved on. There were 6 RINGED PLOVER tonight, I don't know whether they are left over from yesterday's flock or if they are a different bunch. Steve Goddard's RED-CRESTED POCHARD was about again near Stint Corner and there was a single YELLOW WAGTAIL in a tree by the boat moorings. Finally to cap it all a PEREGRINE was flying around near the house boat on the river giving good views for a while.
