Sandwich Tern – 22nd April

This morning a Sandwich Tern flew down-river, past the Deep Pit, where three Common Terns were displaying. A Kingfisher was on the river and a Treecreeper was seen hopping about on the path, picking up food items. The Grasshopper Warbler was reeling on the Deep Pit bank, overlooking the river and a Bittern was seen, flying between reed beds on the Slurry Lagoon. 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.
