Little egret made a brief appearance this morning, got mobbed by BHG's and sulked off North end of moors, sat there couple of minutes and then slipped away unnoticed.

Moors
Red-crested Pochard showing well this evening, snoozing close inshore on the west side. A single 2s Med Gull perched briefly on the rails in front of the concrete hide- compared to the birds seen later, this was probably a 3rd bird to the resident pair on primary pattern.
Sadly no activity around the nest and no sign of the chicks. Seems stranger considering how advanced they were. Hopefully the heat last week didn't get them?
No sign of any GCG or L.Grebe chicks. 2 Kingfisher active at the south end of the pool. 2 Shelduck dropped in briefly. 1 Lapwing and 4(+at least 1) Oystercatchers. 1 Cormorant.

Sailing Pool
1 Egyptian and 2 Greylag Goose

Flashes
4 Med Gulls (2ad +2 2s) + the chick developing well. Blackwit feeding with the Avocets at the back of the flashes, 2 Green Sandpipers 2 drake Teal, 3 Shoveler and 6 LRP (1 grown juv). 1 Curlew flew north. 3 Lapwing
