An early start this morning resulted in a great morning on my patch despite again not seeing the Bearded Tits. First up was a Red-legged Partridge on the approach road at Chevington. My first time I've ever seen a Red-legged on my patch. A female Pintail accompanied two drakes on the north pool, and 3 Sand Martin were there along with 4 Red-breasted Mergansers and a Water Rail.

Briefly two Avocets dropped on to the North Pool calling, but stayed less than thirty seconds before flying off north. Back at the parking spaces the male Marsh Harrier was performing brilliantly, as were two Barn Owls. A single Pink-footed Goose remained on the South Pool.

Finally at the beach 4 Snow Buntings were present at the burn mouth and a Shag and a Kittiwake was offshore.
