A very sunny but still quite chilly morning with a good number of birds. A black kite, presumably yesterdays bird, flew over Denge Marsh gulley at 10.45 am and a red rumped swallow flew over Hookers Pit towards Burrowes Pit at 11.15 am. Also of note, the bittern is still booming and can be heard from the ramp overlooking Hookers Pit and there were 45+ common terns from Denge Marsh hide. There were two cuckoos at ARC and a lesser whitethroat at the entrance to the reserve.

In the Visitor centre the great tit nest continues to entertain with views from our nest cam of the adults feeding the chicks throughout the day.
