Back Out Birding

I have been working for the last three days so apart from daily visits to the Chiseldon Flood Water where the three Gadwall seem to have to taken up residence. Today I went out to the Water Park for a couple of hours arriving about the same time as the rain. A quick look in a Eysey gave just a Green Sandpiper and a Little Egret. Next was Lake 16 where I was hoping the rain would have dropped some Terns down. No Terns but a large number of Sand Martins and Swallows along with a couple of House Martins. I then went to Twitchers where again there were a lot of Sand Martins and Swallows with just a single House Martin and three Swifts. Because of the rain most of the viewing was done from the car Chiffchaff, Cetti’s, Sedge and Willow Warblers were all heard as was a Green Woodpecker.On the way home I had a quick look at the field next to 83 but there weren’t any Whimbrels, just a Mallard and two Swans.
