May 20, 2024 , , , ,
Blenheim: Blenheim Lake
Oystercatcher: on the island, busy seeing off a jackdaw. A nest maybe.
4 Common Tern
9 Little Egret: including 4 recently fledged juv. Possibly two nests. Difficult to be sure especially with cattle egrets also present.
5 Cattle Egret: seen flying to and from the island. Possibly nesting but difficult to be sure.
16 Grey Heron: still several occupied nests on the island.
4 Egyptian Goose: two pairs, one with three young.  

23 Great Crested Grebe
50 Sand Martin: busy around the bridge and nesting on both sides. I think there are around 50ish. Difficult to be sure.
