Another walk of Lingham Lane pays off as the adult, or near adult, Night Heron flew from the trees near Lingham Bridge over my head and disappeared North, seemingly dropping down near the Lighthouse pond. Some record shots were rattled off as the bird gave far better views than the ones we had yesterday. A lovely evening and a fantastic bird.
A full update of the rest of today's birds later:
On the sea 65 Sandwich Terns, 83 Great crested Grebes and 17 Gannets were logged while a Peregrine was feeding on prey, a Gull, at low tide. A single Whimbrel was on the mud flats.
Overhead 50 Swallows and 4 Sand Martins flew mainly east.
A Lesser Whitethroat and a female Redstart were in the Lingham Lane area.
Other birds recorded included 21 Wheatears, 2 Whinchats, a Stonechat, 5 White Wagtails and 5 Grasshopper Warblers.
