As I watched the many House martins and swallows over head a singing Willow warbler came from the tree besides me. As I continued round to the marsh scrape I picked up 4x Blackcaps and at least 5/6 sedge warblers . On the broad a pair of great crested grebes and a pair of Gadwall. On the spit a single Oystercatcher and 3x Stock doves. My first grey lag goslings(3) and also a Kestrel over we're of note.
But bird of the day and my 100 patch tick was a fly in Whimbrel!
I watched it come in towards me as i stood at the cattle pen and then drop into the vegetation on the marsh -a really good bird for here. I waited in hope if it showing near the scrape but i never saw it again .
A superb visit and now for that Whiskered tern to make a appearance :-)
