There's now been up to 3 spoonbills on the Flood on a daily basis since last weekend, but only 2 were present today. And I could only see one this evening, but hopefully one or more will hang around until tomorrow. Raptors today included 2 each of buzzard, sparrowhawk & peregrine + ring-tail hen harrier & female merlin. At least 2 wheatear & a few yellow wagtails around the reserve + still at least one spotted redshank and 340 dunlin,104 turnstone & 8 bar-tailed godwits up on the tide. Wigeon numbers are disappearing fast - certainly fewer than 100 left now, although these included a curiously marked drake yesterday. The yellow crown extended round to include the cheeks and there was a green flash through it's eyes. Otherwise it looked normal. Presumably some sort of hybrid - perhaps with a bit of American wigeon or maybe teal in it. Pintail are also getting hard to find, with a total of only 5 noted today. The injured white-front has swapped allegiance and today was with 3 greylags. 4 ruff were along the access track by the White Gate, along with a handful of Med gulls and there were a couple of corn buntings and a chiffchaff around Kingshill Farm.
