3rd September 2008

Visited Earlswood during the afternoon today. In New Fallings Coppice, saw 2 Nuthatches together. At the lakes, saw at least 2 Commic Terns, over 40 hirundines (mostly Swallows, but also 1 House Martin), 4 Tufted Ducks, 1 Cormorant, 13 Great Crested Grebes, 15 Coots and at least 7 Moorhens. At Windmill Pool, saw a Grey Wagtail and had a good view of a Kingfisher flying over the water.

Many thanks for those sightings. I've now added my email address to the blog, so you're more than welcome to send sightings via that instead so that I can post them on the blog.
