A single spoonbill still present on the Budge fields (seemingly two were there later). A Reed warbler (which bred at Druridge for the first time last year) was back and singing on territory, was the other highlight. Also nice to see was at least two out of the three stonechats we ringed as pullus, fully fledged and moved away from the nest site, independent of their parents.
|You can't see it, but it has got a ring on it. Juvenile stonechat|
Other birds of note were a juvenile goosander on the big pool and a two fledged pied wag young.
