West End Levels

A Great White Egret just west of Chates this morning, heading north. Gave great views as it flew past. Other highlights were a Kingfisher flying up river and a Treecreeper in West End Lane. Much rain recently has meant some of the fields by the river have now started to flood drawing in good numbers of wildfowl and Black-headed Gulls, plus a few Lapwing. A reminder that winter isn’t too at away, but a lone Swallow heading west showes that autumn migration ain’t quite over just yet!
