After spending practically all of yesterday in the Park, doing bird walks for NENBC & NT, I didn’t manage to get out today until late afternoon. This meant that I certainly missed out on Moss’s two Crane, seen over the Park this morning – gnash! There was the usual stuff on the water meadow, including the rather odd looking female Mallard-Shoveler x, with ten remaining chicks, a couple of Snipe, the pair of Oystercatcher and a lone Lapwing. Over the lake, a mixed hirundine flock included the two Martin species and Swallow. The very pale Buzzard was soaring over Common Plantation along with two more regular looking birds. Little Owl was calling from the oaks near the dam. Highlight of the walk was Reed Warbler, found by Simon, and heard only, but more evidence that summer is on it’s way!
