Holme Bird Observatory Wednesday 11th September 2019

As usual the Great Egret was on the grazing Marsh, two Pintail were on the Broadwater and unusual for the reserve was a Treecreeper found in the roving tit flock in the pines at the rear of the Observatory. Two Eiders were just off shore mid morning and a Grey wagtail flew west along the dunes.
