Monday 4th September 2017

A dull and drizzly start with an increasing south-east breeze produced a few interesting sightings at the Obs with single Great White Egret and Spoonbill, together with 11 Black-tailed Godwits flying east, a Spotted Redshank on the Broadwater, 13 Snipe, 5 Swifts and over 150 Swallows all recorded. On the NWT reserve 2 Short-eared Owls were around Lavender Marsh and a Whinchat was in the dunes.
