Dawn walk ramp up

I had intended to get out every morning this week, but late nights studying are making it too tough right now. Still I managed Tuesday 21st at 07:00 2 Kingfisher greeted me and were very vocal along the Loddon a Grey Wagtail over too.

At Lea Farm 104 Wigeon, 65 Teal, 14+ Snipe and at last the Jack Snipe again, bobbing on the edge of vegetation along the East shore behind the left hand end of the shingle island.

A Green Sandpiper seen at Tern scrape later that morning was the first for the year, putting the park on 93 for 2017, and a 3rd place, equal to 2016, just one behind 2015 and 4 off the 2012 record.

I am still on 89, but apart from Brian's Woodcock am not fretting over catching the others I'm missing.
