Sprinkle Pill and Great Egret

Good numbers of waders and wildfowl now at the mouth of the pill. 

Golden Plover (500+), Lapwing (200+), Redshank (51), Dunlin (55), Curlew (10+), Bar-tailed Godwit (2), Snipe (1), Greenshank (1).

Canada Goose (300+), Greylag Goose (100+), Wigeon (131), Teal, Mallard, Tufted Duck (2 – m&f – very unusual for here), Great Crested Grebe (2). The Canada x Greylag hybrid is again with the Canada flock.

Scanning up the Eastern Cleddau from Fowborough Point – a rangy white heron at the water’s edge east of Landshipping – a Great Egret.

Lots of Redwings in the bushes still. The bulk of the Fieldfares seem to have moved on, from here at least.
