Egyptian Goose – 28th August

This morning there was a steady passage of Swallows over the site. There were still Reed and Sedge Warblers in front of the Causeway Bench, and some Water Rails. Twelve Egyptian Geese with one Ruddy Shelduck were loafing on the Slurry Lagoon and a Fox put in a brief appearance, as well as a Kingfisher. Later six Buzzards were sharing a thermal and a Red Kite passed through. PS.

In the early afternoon a Hobby was seen over the Large Gravel Pit, hawking dragonflies. IEP.

In the late afternoon at least three Willow Emeralds were on the Lower Path, by the stepping stones. JDn.

Nine of the Egyptian Geese – PS.
