Friday 10th June 2011

First visit for over a week after being away sampling the birding delights of Norfolk and Suffolk.

Castle Lake this evening produced a Blue-headed Wagtail, 1 Little Egret, 6 Grey Heron, Greylag Goose with 3 gosling, drake Teal, Kestrel, 6 adult & 2 juvenile Oystercatcher, 1 Redshank, 3 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 2 Mistle Thrush overflew and a Corn Bunting singing close to the hide (pictured below).

Little Egret on Castle Lake this evening. At 6.15pm it flew to Alan's Pool but didn't stay long after being harrased by a pair of Lesser Black-backed Gull's and flew down to the southern part of the A1 Flashes (the northern area is now completely bone dry).

Catching up with news from last weekend thanks to John Olley and Birdguides;
