Both Natalie & myself had the weekend off, but a number of visitors reported some interesting birds on the reserve.
On Saturday, a spoonbill was again seen on the Swale, along with a spotted redshank. Raptors included male hen harrier, merlin and 3 buzzard. Continuing the run of bearded tit records, 7 were recorded.
On Sunday, a juvenile gannet was reported, as were the first 6 white-fronted geese of the winter. Raptors included 2 merlin & 2 peregrine, while waders included 4 spotted redshank & a green sandpiper
