Great White Egret & Green-winged Teal – 25th October

This morning a Great White Egret flew over the railway bridge from the potato field currently being harvested. It went over the bridge and appeared to drop back into the stream by the line of willow trees but out of sight. The drake Green-Winged Teal was along the reed edge of the Slurry Lagoon and there was a light passage of Fieldfares and Redwings. Two Siskin flew over calling along with several Skylarks and a flock of 60 Lapwing circled the site before heading north-east over the fields. The large flock of Greylags and Canada Geese were still in the fields and flew noisily onto the Slurry Lagoon mid-morning.  NM
