Deer Hobby

On our arrival at the pond over 200 House Martins out of the 1000+ still present were gathered on the roof of the visitor center while beneath them 5 Ringed Plover, 5 Dunlin and a Common Sandpiper searched the southern shoreline for food. Our best find’s of the day were a stunning stag Roe Deer in the second field behind the inlet and on our return 2 Hobbies , adult and juvenile appeared near the end of hensborough bank hunting House Martins. Other sightings included 2 adult and a second year Yellow-legged Gull, Gadwall, Pochard, Jay, Buzzard, Grey Wagtail and 300 Sand Martin. There were very few Swallows around.
