A cracking morning, a fair amount of blue sky and warm sun, my kind of birding day. 12 Snipe on the flood this morning possibly more in the sedge, this one not quite got the camouflage thing. I did an initial count of 38 Lapwings but there was more cumming in all the time. Also c.50 Black-headed gulls and a few Common gulls, close by perched in a tree there was a Kestrel till disturbed by a dog walker.
Next I moved on to Bright Tarn near Greystoke moor, here there was 16 Greylags, good numbers of Teal, a female Wigeon, Mallard, and Pheasants in nearby fields. there was also Jays about and a Buzzard calling. quite an enjoyable morning.
