The purple patch continues. With strong north winds we were hoping for a displaced seabird and this adult Kittiwake appeared in the afternoon. Also a Black-tailed Godwit this morning and one Arctic Tern.
Two Yellow Wagtails, 1 Common Sandpiper and 1 LRP were feeding on the lake edge. Shelduck numbers are now up to 14.
3 male and 1 female Gadwall were displaying and flying round and looks like they are thinking about breeding.
We have been keeping a bank holiday list and added three gulls today- Great Black-backed, Yellow-legged and the Kittiwake.
