Coate Water

The Bittern is now into its sixth week at Coate and is still showing well albeit at a challenging distance for the photographers. Another sighting of a Dunlin yesterday (Mike and Sue Phelps). This may well be the same bird that was seen on the second. If so, where has it been hiding itself?  The year has started well here with Peregrine, Yellow Legged Gull,  Pintail,  Brent Goose, Goldeneye and regular Mandarin already on the year list. It is also probably the best place in the county for seeing Goosander . Hopefully the run will continue throughout the year.    (pic by Tony Martin).Photo of a Dunlin
