Rained off

ARC - 1045hrs - cloudy, mild, rain, s 3 - A very wet day with heavy rain throughout. We ventured down to Screen and checked from Hanson where the same waders and wildfowl as the past few days were present: eight Blackwits, seven Dunlin, three Little Ringed Plovers, two Ruff, Spotted Redshank, Greenshank and Knot, plus four Garganey and a Black-necked Grebe. The rain had driven down hundreds of hirundines over the lake, mainly Sand Martins.
Burrowes  - Whilst drying out in the VC more hirundines noted over the water, two Common Sandpipers on islands and the Great White Egret in front of Makepiece hide.
