Sunday 19th November 2017

2 Great Northern Divers went north at Long Nab today and in the fields the Whimbrel remained for another day and there were 5 Snipe and 37 Curlews.

Both the Great White Egret and the Cattle Egret remained at Wykeham South Lake. The Great White was seen first thing and then again at 15.54 when it dropped into the northwest corner presumably to roost. The Cattle Egret was probably seen first thing but not well enough to be 100% certain and was seen again flying in from the east at 11.30 when it seemed to go down on Causeway Lake. Finally it was seen flying to the northwest corner of the Lake at 15.10 as with the Great White it was presumably going to roost. Also seen at Wykeham South Lake today 8 Goldeneye, 3 Pochard, 8 Egyptian Geese, a Water Rail to the right of the viewpoint and 2 Whooper Swans joined by 22 others in the evening to roost.

Elsewhere we had a Water Rail and a Kingfisher at the Open Air Theatre; 6 Jack Snipe and 2 Common Snipe at Taylor Way and on Seamer Tip Pool 13 Gadwall, a Shoveler, 4 Wigeon, 3 Tufted Duck and 2 Redshank.
