Sunny and relaxing

A bright morning with Hobby, Raven, Great-spotted Woodpecker, 12 Gadwall, 5 Shoveler, 3 Yellow Wagtail, 6 Common Tern, 4 Little Egret and a first winter Little Gull on our walk to hensborough bank with Dave and Keith Y. Plenty of hirundine still around but numbers down from our previous visits, single Swift noted. Although not counted there were hundreds of Canada Geese on the wind surfing area shore-line with many Greylag Geese dotted among them (90 counted on Monday which is a personal site record) Keith spotted a Red Kite drifting west over Napton on the Hill while I managed to pick out a Sand Martin among the House Martins feeding high over the hill and a Cormorant heading east. Lost count on the number of Raven and Buzzard present today being very vocal and mobile while other sightings included 4 Mistle Thrush, 3 Chiffchaff, Green Woodpecker and 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker
