Hi Simon,

Black Tern still present at 15.15, spending some time loafing on the back field with the Black-headed Gulls and a few Common Terns. When it ventures out over the water the other Terns hassle it !

If only! You're not the only one rueing the day they didn't enter, but remember it's never to late to do so, you never know when that county first is just around the corner or that BBRC rarity is going to fly over or you're really going to hit a 'purple patch' and rack them up smile.gif

2 Little Ringed Plover this afternoon(fri) .
Interesting visit today, one of the Plovers looked to be hollowing a scrape and sitting but couldn't be sure as they where disturbed by a boat coming back from the other island. The guys on site were dealing with the Canada Goose cull. Not as gruesome as it sounds. Talking to them, they had moved a couple of nests out of the shingled areas away from the Oystercatchers nests. Their biggest worry is the canadas stomping all over the Oyster's nests and the LRP if they breed. They where also very pleased that the LRP were there. They also told me that they had removed several "very large nails" from the fishing pegs, apparently put there deliberately to keep the Cormorants away! What's that all about?

Also saw a Carrion Crow fishing! It was flying low over the water and caught a small fish in it's beak then landing on a fence post to eat it. Never seen this before.

At least 4 common Terns and a few Swallows.

Dean.
