Lockdown list padders
Lade - Lockdown Day 29 - cold, dry and sunny, ne 5 - Yet another day of blasting north-easterlies off the bay with clear blue, vapour-trail free skies, resulting in a poor return for the morning exercise walk. However, two common laggards did go onto the list in the shape of a Little Egret (102) flying over south lake and a distant flock of ten Lapwings (103) over the airfield. A single Whimbrel flew north and two Wheatears were on the desert. Around the willow swamp more Reed and Sedge Warblers in, plus Lesser Whitethroat, Cuckoo and Marsh Harrier.
