On our return leg there were three Greenshanks, two Common Sandpipers and a Wheatear on the mud near the poplars, and as we started to walk away from the poplars, two Spoonbills appeared, heading south/southwest. They looked to be going to land in one of the reservoirs, until about half a dozen Canada Geese flew up and spooked them and we couldn’t clearly see where they headed after that. (CE et al)
The other highlight was a Short-eared Owl out on the reserve, distant from the Easton viewpoint. It was eventually mobbed by two corvids and headed west.
Also seen were a Willow Warbler, a Sparrowhawk, a Kestrel, a pair of Yellowhammers, six corn Buntings and several Whitethroats and Stonechats. (GT)
