Grey Plovers

RSPB - 1200hrs - cool, misty, drizzle - A tour of the bird reserve, in November like weather, produced all the usual bits and pieces with the highlight being a clutch of waders at the south end of ARC, including two each of Grey Plovers, Blackwits, Ringed Plovers, Oystercatchers and 3 Dunlins. A Bittern showed again over Tower Pits. Evidence of post breeding dispersal was apparent with small groups of Black-headed Gulls and Lapwings about the place going into moult. On Burrowes all the usual gulls, Cormorants and a pair of Wigeons. Plenty of activity over Dengemarsh from the Common Terns, plus 2 Garganeys, 6 Shovelers, Pochards, Dabchick, a couple of bedraggled Marsh Harriers, pinging Beardies, Raven, Cuckoo and another flyover Bittern.
