May 4th 2010

The male Garganey is still present with it reported on the outlet this morning but by the time Bob and I got there it had moved to biggen bay and stayed amongst the willows giving poor views.
A new arrival was the Hobby hunting Swifts whose numbers were again impressive with at least 600 but there were not so many hirundines as yesterday and another surprise arrival was a White Wagtail on saddle bank. Only other birds of note were 5 Buzzard, Garden Warbler, many Blackcaps calling, female Wheatear, 4 Yellow Wagtail and both Great-northern Divers present.
I have arranged another walk on 17th June besides the one on the 13th of this month and will be the last unless the current proposals to close centre is rescinded or delayed.
