Wetland Bird Survey

Super area walk and WeBs today with Mike & Lesley.  Gadwall and 200 Lapwing (on Roger F’s patch) Green Sandpiper by the river, Red Kite near Stretham, and on the brooks were Canada & Greylag Geese, Wigeon and Teal in good numbers (100+ of each), Shoveler, Pintail and Snipe, with the addition of 2 newly arrived Shelduck.  We looked across to where we had seen the Lapwing earlier, and a huge flock (600?) were up in the air.  Finally Lesley spotted the Glossy Ibis seen earlier in the week, this time much closer and in good light – smashing!
