Monday 1st June

On the rising tide, 21 Sanderling foraged out on a sand bar.  Footware removal and wading out into the tidal channels was thea level of commitment one observer was prepared to go to to secure details of a colour-ringed individual, which turned out to be yesterday's bird from Guinea-Bissau.  A Dunlin was also present.

A late Spotted Flycatcher was in the Entrance Bushes. The Canada Goose nest must have been well concealed because up until now only a single bird had been seen on the Main Pond, but today the pair was back together shepherding their three goslings.  Noisy Little Grebe chicks and their parents largely remained hidden in the reeds.  

Distantly outside of the recording area, a Red Kite drifted by.
