Sunny spells 7.2c SW light. This morning Little Egret, 108 Herring Gulls, 100 BH. Gulls, 1 adult Common Gull, a Water Rail sang and 3 Buzzards were up together.

This afternoon Dabchick, 14 Greylags, a Coal Tit sang, 5 Water Rail called and 20 Pied Wagtails were following the  tractor harrowing the top field. Fieldfares and Redwing came in off the stubble field to roost.

A Bittern flew from the reed bed in front of the first seat a short distance to the right at 16.00hrs. (Gary Standish) Then at 18.20hrs it returned to the same reed bed to roost. A Cetti's Warbler sang and Male and female Tawny Owls called as 4 Snipe left to feed.
