Cattle Egrets

Lade - cold, cloudy, E 2 - Although the wind had relented somewhat from yesterday it was still a nippy old morning with the temperature hovering around 4C. Despite spending an hour scouring north lake for the Red-necked Grebe it could not be found (presumably tucked up in a reedbed) but showed well enough out on the open water during the afternoon visit. There was no sign again of the Hume`s Warbler.
  A brief seawatch from the point delivered the usual auks, Gannets, Red-throated Divers and Kittiwakes offshore, plus at least 20 Woodpigeons in the old lighthouse garden.

  On the bird reserve three Cattle Egrets in the Boulderwall fields by Cook`s Pool along with a single Great White Egret, plus Lapwings, Golden Plovers, Wigeon, Marsh Harrier and Buzzard further out.  At Cockles Bridge the flock of 10 Bewick`s Swans were still present in the fields towards Lydd.
