Grey Seals

Lade - 0630hrs - cool, sunny, w2 - Checked out Mockmill Sewer this morning (that runs beside the southern end of south lake) and behind the `mirrors`. A small selection of grounded migrants in the scrub included 10 Willow Warblers, 5 Sedge and 8 Reed Warbler, 2 Whitethroats and singles of Wheatear and Stonechat. Overhead, a trickle of Yellow Wagtails, Sand Martins and a few Swallows. Also, singles of Marsh Harrier, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel, Whimbrel, Greenshank and Cetti`s Warbler.
In the bay off Greatstone at high tide 3 Grey Seals were `snorkeling` just offshore.
Boulderwall-  1500hrs A brief check of the meadows for the reported Cattle Egret drew a blank...
