Wild swans

Long Pits - 1030hrs - mild, sunny, w 4 - Just for a change of scene we did a circuit of Long Pits this morning, optimistically with roosting Leos in mind, but realistically seeing virtually nothing apart from a few tits, Robins, Blackbirds and Chiffchaffs in the scrub and a Dabchick on the water.
Causeway Road - The five Goosanders were still on New Diggings along with two each of Great White and Little Egrets, while on ARC Goldeneye and Black-necked Grebe were out in the rough water with 200 Gadwall in the shallows.

                                Bewick`s Swans, Walland Marsh

Lydd - The two Cattle Egrets appear to have settled down for the duration in the field opposite the stone yard in Dengemarsh Road, while on the northern outskirts of town, on Walland Marsh near Swamp Crossing Farm, the mixed swan flock had risen to 26 Bewick`s (two of which were juvs) and an adult Whooper Swan, which I`ve just realised was new for the year; now, where is that year list..
