A Curlew flew through this afternoon and there were four Green Sandpipers on the Ecopark. JDn.
This afternoon there were two Little Egrets in the Ouse Dyke and a Little Ringed Plover on the dry end of the Slurry Lagoon, near the beach. PS.
This afternoon three Peregrines were over the reserve. They drew attention to themselves by very loud and agitated calling. Two were males and one a female, and they perched for a while on the pylons, calling the whole time. One male swooped at the other male and drove it off. It then landed on a pylon above the female, still calling agitatedly. Shortly it flew off along the wires and the female followed it, stooping at it half-heartedly before flying off following the other male. The remaining male then settled on a pylon. PS.
Today a Wheatear was seen briefly on a fence post by the Deep Pit, but flew off towards the dry end of the Slurry Lagoon. A Chiffchaff was present and a Blackcap was heard singing. The Cetti’s Warbler was singing in the Deep Pit and a Shelduck was on the Slurry Lagoon. DM.
