Post breeding dispersal

Lade - 0900hrs - warm, dry and sunny, light airs - A circuit of the pits delivered plenty of Cuckoo activity still on the go, plus the first overhead flock of Lapwings looking for a suitable field to drop on.

                                Lapwings, ARC

ARC - At the south end from the causeway road 100 roosting Lapwings along with three Little Egrets and a group of eclipse ducks including three Garganey, four Gadwall and a Shoveler. From Hanson hide 50 more Gadwall, 30 Pochard and at least five pairs of Great Crested Grebes with juvs.
From Cockles Bridge a couple of Yellow Wagtails on the paddock, a species that has been thin on the ground this summer, apart from the Scotney area.
