On Saturday the Great White Egret was showing quite well on the west side of the North Pool. My second 3-pointer of the year for Patchwork Challenge. A few Swallows, 3 Pintail and 7 Red-breasted Merganser were also present with 3+ Sandwich Terns offshore.
I finally added Bearded Tit to the patch list with brief view of a male in flight on Sunday. Nice to see after six years spent trying! A Barn Owl was nearby and 2 Pintail remained along with 4 Red-breasted Mergansers. There were good numbers of hirundines about as well.
Also on Saturday, a Little Ringed Plover and a White Wagtail were at the north end of Cresswell Pond, with a Wheatear at Snab Point on Sunday.
