More soggy effort

The rain finally stopped at mid-day but at least our efforts this morning in appalling conditions produced some migration with 2 Knot that flew over farborough spit and appeared to land on the west side of reservoir, Whimbrel over calling and a Ruff feeding in front of the fishing lodge. Other sightings included 6 Little Egret, 2 Meadow Pipit, 10 Yellow Wagtail, 5 Common Tern and a Yellow-legged Gull. Plenty of hirundine but heavy rain stopped us from counting them A second visit early afternoon added Raven and adult Little Gull while Common Tern were up to 12.

In between visits to the pond we did our normal walk on Napton Hill managing 7 Mistle Thrush, Whitethroat, Spotted Flycatcher, Goldcrest, 2 Blackcap, Swift and 5 Raven.
