A quick patch visit today around East Warwick and the Rear Paddocks.
A female Teal stood out among the Tufties.
The East Warwick water level was teasingly low. And with the wind being so gusty I could see there were quite a few small birds taking refuge in the exposed rocks. A little walk along the 'shoreline' flushed several Grey and Pied Wagtails, three Common Sandpipers and one female Wheatear.
The reed bed between 1 & 2 continues to develop.
There was no black and glossy bird in the flood relief channel by the rear paddocks.
Just a little white one.
