Tuesday 30th August

Went around twice today, once a 7am and again this evening. It was rather quiet rare bird wise with the only bird of note being the immature LRP which I picked up again this evening. This morning though there were in excess of 500 Coot and an impressive 600 hirundines and 5 Swift. However most of the hirundines had moved on during the day and this evening it was closer to around 40.

Again there were 50+ Gadwall, 3 Wigeon and 6 Shoveler and the number of Gt Crested Grebe must be around 100 although they are that well spread it is anyone guess. It has certainly settled down a little and I think we need another front to get the birds moving.
