  • Blog Post: Osprey trumped by white storks

    An osprey was over the north brooks at midday yesterday, appearing at precisely the same time as a guided walk I was leading arrived at the hanger viewpiont. Very convenient. It circled a few times, gained height and headed off to the north. Jon and Hans (who found the osprey), then topped that by finding...
  • Blog Post: Spoonbill remains best scoop

    The (utterly fabulous) spoonbill is still present on the north brooks, giving great views from Nettley's hide and remains top of the list for most visitors.

  • Blog Post: Temminck's stint stops by

    Last week's wryneck and spoonbills were topped by an all too brief gull-billed tern that was seen by a couple of birders on sunday morning for a few minutes before it headed north.

    Hundreds of swifts overhead/passing through all day yesterday. This morning at 08.00, masses of swallows and house martins hawking over the flood (probably 1000 over the whole site) and still many swifts. Nightingales and song thrushes in good voice around the trail, just-fledged rooks in the tree tops...
  • Blog Post: Blackcaps, chiffchaffs gather

    Interesting morning (07.30-08.30) around the trail: when I saw a garden warbler, a bird I rarely see in the autumn here, in the hedge alongside the zigzags I thought it might be good. Blackcaps and willow warblers/chiffchaffs were all over the site, and decent number of other common migrants were noted...
