A cracking spring morning that didn't quite meet up to its promise.
WeBS count this morning so had to spend a few hours on the reserve. Started off well with a brambling (122) in the trees around the picnic area. The lagoons are very quiet now most of the wildfowl have moved off. Loads of avocets, water pipit and aythya hybrid still about. The news of 2 cranes moving west along the coast encouraged me to sit by the fresh marsh but once they had got to Morston they decided to turn around and go back east - doh!
28 velvet scoter with 1900 common was probably the highest for a number of years.

Robins in the garden have now got 3 eggs
