We took advantage of the sun and warmth this morning and headed to the patch. Despite no migrants being seen yet there were still a few birds of interest...

The raptors were perhaps the most obvious with 2 different female Marsh Harriers, c.10 Buzzards, and twos of Sparrowhawk and Kestrel in the bay. Also on the move were Pied Wagtails with a steady passage of birds heading north.

Druridge Pools still held the Ruff and 4 Pintail with a female Scaup on the north pool, and at Cresswell Pond the Long-billed Dowitcher remained along with 5 Avocets and a showy Water Rail.
