Thursday 4th August 2011

A few pictures from this evening's visit to Castle Lake.

Dunlin with one of four Little Ringed Plover.

Three Ruffians.

Sparrowhawk keeping an eye on the eastern scrape.

Not for the first time an overflying helicopter spooked all the Greylag's out of the fields and back onto the lake.

Still amongst them was this individual, white around the base of the bill and a much paler neck and head than any of the other Geese.

Another picture, possible hybrid Greylag/White-fronted Goose??

Other birds present this evening included 2 Cormorant, 3 Greenshank and 5 Green Sandpiper.
