Sightings week ending 13/11/2016

Farlington

Lots of birds as usual , though the water on the lake is high again causing the birds to roost further up the stream,

The Short Eared Owls are stealing the show as usual with 3 as a max count at the moment. As they fly over the marsh they constantly set off Snipe. Two Spotted Redshank tonight and three Avocet on the stream, though max count of the latter is 6. Loads of Wigeon feeding in the fields with the Brents starting to use it now. There were 28 Shoveler on the deeps and looking out to the harbour from that point there were 32 Ringed Plover.

Bearded Tits are quite vocal and can be seen above the reed. I have filled the feeding platform by the building with grit and some seed so hopefully there will be some nice shots there.

Hookheath

Last two times I have worked down there, a Raven has flown over. Bullfinches are present constantly as well as decent numbers of Marsh Tit. There is lots of fungi as well.

Southmoor

The usual mass of waders and wildfowl at low tide.
