Friday to Sunday

Friday started 05:54 with 8 Common Tern over Sandford, at LFGP I found 4 then a 5th LRP so quite nice seeing such numbers. A Snipe flew past low left, a Common Sandpiper, 8 Teal, a Shelduck, 2 Gadwall and the daily Grey Wagtail collecting food.

At BSL c100 mixed hirundines plus 1 then 3 Swift.

Back out at LFGP and it felt more quiet, but 4 Garden Warbler by the benches and the usual Lesser Whitethroat in the car park field was nice enough. 4 Swift over BSL today and a march up to the BSL/WSL hedgerow got us nice views of Nightingale thanks to John McGowan's keen scoping.

Today I was filled with high hopes and little time, so arrived even earlier. My hopes were somewhat fulfilled with 2 Ringed Plover and 3 LRP on the East shore. A second scan revealed the male Garganey yet again in the NE corner!

Nothing except a pair of Mistle Thrushes over BSL, but at the car park field a Yellow Wagtail called once as it headed over NNE.
