March 20th 2009

Not to be out done by yesterdays disturbance I was down the pond before 6am and left by 8am, enough time to do the place justice with 2 Redshank and Oystercatcher in toft bay, Lesser Redpoll in grays barn, Red-necked Grebe off farborough bank and 3 Great-northern Diver together out in the centre. Other birds seen were 3 Chiffchaff, 2 Sand Martin, 3 female Goosander, 60 Wigeon, 10 Gadwall, 3 Shoveler, 10 Teal, 12 Goldeneye, Great-spotted Woodpecker, 4 Mistle Thrush, 4 Reed Bunting, 20 Meadow Pipit and Sparrowhawk. Two other Chiffchaff’s heard on the way home.
Went back out with Dave in the afternoon for our Friday coffee and cake session and a walk to farborough spit amongst the hoards and not surprisingly it was a waste of time with only one Great-northern Diver seen.
