After My Lie-in

After a long day of driving yesterday (for family not work) the plan to get up early to go for Nightingale was never going to work. It was gone ten before I even got to the water park. The meadow by Waterhay held a few geese and swans and a single Oystercatcher Kent End was very quiet with just a couple of Teal and a Redshank. Arriving at Twitchers another birder had been watching a Marsh Harrier just a few minutes earlier. However it didn’t show while I was there. Best birds here were first for year Swift and Hobby with plenty of Warblers singing along with Green Woodpecker and Cuckoo. At Eysey a fair time was spent looking for an elusive Greenshank which after over thirty minutes finally came into view when it flew out from the hidden pools at the back to landing full-view. It only stayed for a couple of minutes before heading back into cover. So yet another worthwhile short visit.
