The Great White Egret at Seamer Tip Pool was still present today but initially it was a little nervous and on a couple of occasions flew off to the northwest. At one point a second bird was suspected as whilst one was being watched in a tree on the Mere there was also one reported at Seamer Tip Pool. However, after this one off incident the bird remained fairly faithful to its original location and even though it flew off on a couple of occasions it returned fairly quickly and a second bird was not reported again. Also on the pool today were a Pintail, 4 Teal and 4/5 Tufted Duck among the resident Mallards.
Elsewhere, there were two reports of Ospreys in our area with one southwest over Westwood Court towards The Mere at 11.32 and then another flew low over the A1039 towards Hunmamby at 17.35; the 2 Wood and 2 Green Sandpipers remained on the North Stile Farm pool and had been joined by 2 Snipe and a Lapwing and at Wykeham South Lake this evening a Little Egret, 1200 Herring Gulls, 25 Greater Black-backed Gulls, 14+ Lesser Black-backed Gulls, 25 Common Gulls and 40 Black-headed Gulls.
