The lake produced a real rarity the following day in the form of a COOT(81).It's amazing how few appear on the lake!
Furnace pond rarity.
As I left the house on Sunday 23rd I saw two gulls going over the village and was delighted to see that one was an adult Mediterranean Gull(82). It's always good to get this one on the list and was followed by a Cuckoo calling loudly as it went towards the lake where I also added a Garden Warbler(83).With a southerly breeze picking up a few gulls were going over the garden in the afternoon and I was gobsmacked to have eight Med Gulls over the house, a brilliant garden tick.
Later in the day I looked at Bird guides to find that a Lesser Yellowlegs had turned up at Dungeness so later on we headed down and were delighted to connect with it-a first for me.
We had a walk round the reserve and found Sedge Warblers all over the place.
One of the many Sedge Warblers.
