Circular walk yesterday from Sully to Cosmeston. A Black Redstart was on fencing at Jubilee Hall, Sully. Good views of Curlew on Sully playing fields, and of female Bullfinch, Green Woodpecker, Jay and Long-tailed Tits along St Mary’s Well Bay Road. Lots of birdsong in the calm conditions including Song Thrush, Skylark, Greenfinch and Chaffinch.
At Cosmeston the female Scaup was on the East Lake, a Water Rail and Cetti’s Warbler were heard at the East Lake reedbed, and Gadwall, Shoveler and Pochard were on the West Lake. Mistle Thrush, Redwing and Fieldfare also present, and a pair of Raven flew over calling.
