Considering the heavy rain, I had a good selection of birds this evening! A Turtle Dove was 'purring' in the car park. The East Trail produced a Barn Owl, Marsh Harriers x 2, Great Crested Grebe, Tufted Ducks, Little Grebe, Swallows, Swifts, Sand Martins. There were hundreds of tiny baby toads all along the paths around the East Trail – they were so small I could only just see them – I had to step very carefully!

Along the Fen Trail a Cuckoo and Cetti's Warbler were calling, a bedraggled Sedge Warbler posed briefly and a Wren posed briefly by the Fen Hide.

On the Freshmarsh from Island Hide I had several 'two's'! Curlews x 2, Turnstones x 2, Spotted Redshanks x 2, Spoonbills x 2, Little Gulls x 2, Reed Warblers x 2, Pied Wagtails x 2, a Mediterranean Gull, Black-headed Gulls, Herring Gulls, Sandwich Terns, Common Terns, Lapwings, Avocets and juv., Black-tailed Godwits, Shelducks, Teal, Shoveler, Gadwall, Heron, Bearded Tits pinging, Reed Bunting, Cormorants, Oystercatchers, Blackbird, Coots, Moorhens, Redshanks. I could not see any Garganey. As I left Island Hide at about 8pm, I disturbed a huge Starling flock in the willows. A very wet walk back to my car. A squirrel knocked a nest box down in the picnic area as I walked past – on investigation it was luckily empty! Visited mother for a short while, before heading home to sort all my wet gear out!
