Staying Local

Smashed the patch this morning and had some good birds but still lacking any real quality, couldn't complain though had four patch year ticks in the shape of flyby Redpoll and Siskin and a bonus Turtle Dove south and a Spot fly around the cordite.

Best of the rest were at least 13 Whinchat on site, Wheatear, constant Yellow wag and House Martin movement, Barn Owl, Marsh Harrier, Bearded Tits, Pintail, Greenshank.

The foreshore held a single Avocet, 3 Turnstone amongst the Dunlin & Ringed plover at least 13 Seal hauled up on the far side were by far my highest count.

Star bird of the day goes to this Spotted Redshank found by Vince at the Dagenham chase this morning having earlier been seen at Fairlop by Alan bell, first since may 1992 and a site tick for myself.
