August 16th 2011

Early morning disturbance at the pond made for a poor visit with 15 Ringed Plover, 4 Dunlin, Little Ringed Plover and 2 Common Sandpiper scattered between fishing pontoon and toft bay with another 4 Ringed Plover flying in when it rained mid-morning.
The blustery south westerly conditions made toft shallows a haven for passerines with 10+ Willow Warbler, 4 Chiffchaff, 2 Garden Warbler, 5 Long-tailed Tit, Goldcrest, 4 Bullfinch and 10+ Goldfinch. Only other birds of note were 100+ Swift and 3 adult Yellow-legged Gull.
