Birding in the mist

Lade - mild, misty, light airs - A strange day dominated by the weather with thick fog coming and going throughout, plus drizzle and even a bright spell early afternoon before the murk rolled in again by dusk. The highlight on the local patch was a flock of 20 Redwings over and a Great White Egret in the main reedbed.
  This afternoon three Cattle Egrets were in the fields opposite the livery stables along the Lydd Road and the two Whooper Swans amongst the Mutes from Cockles Bridge. On the bird reserve the drake Smew seen earlier on Burrowes had moved elsewhere, while a Firecrest showed by Scott hide and a Tree Sparrow on the car park feeders.
