Jack Snipe – 21st September

This afternoon, during the bird-walk, a Jack Snipe was flushed from the muddy shore-line in front of the Causeway bench. The three Pintail were still present on the Slurry Lagoon, along with Shoveler, Wigeon, Teal and Gadwall and the Green Sandpiper was at the back with several Snipe. PS.

Cuckoo – 8th May

This morning there were two cuckoos seen by the Small Gravel Pit. One was calling and the other was silent, so presumably was a female. Later a male was calling on the southern edge of the Slurry Lagoon and a silent Cuckoo was also present. These both then flew to the railway land where another male was calling. So there were at least three Cuckoos present and may have been five. There were also thirteen singing Garden Warblers and a Green Hairstreak was seen on the Causeway. PS.

Redstart – 19th April

This morning two Reed Warblers were singing from the Slurry Lagoon reed bed, two Whitethroats and a Lesser Whitethroat were also singing. A Common Tern was flying around the tern platforms but left after a short while. On the Causeway a female Redstart was seen catching insects from the fencing and, near the Slurry Lagoon dry end, a male Redstart was also seen. PS.
