Main sighting: Kestrel and Marsh Harrier
Evening visit at low tide. All three lagoons and full of water. Unfortuntately they were devoid of waders this evening. Priors is looking like Swan Lake – 12 Mute Swans and 1 Black Swan. Hedgerows were full of Chiff Chaffs, Robins and others small birds. Green Woodpecker seen at the back of the Redshank Platform. Female Kestrel was hunting near Seawall Hide. She was picking off what looked like field voles which appear to be abundant in the field along the seawall.
Out on the mud were 48 Knots, 20C Black Tailed Godwits, 62 x Oystercatchers, 20+ Curlews and 80+ Black Headed Gulls. Lots of Drafgonflies around and Swallows and House Martins over the fields.
Female Marsh Harrier quartered Priors and caused all the Teal to take flight.
