Weekend update

Saturday 28th February - Monday 2nd March 2009
Saturday's birding was a quick trip to Slimbridge WWT in the morning to see the American Wigeon again, this time from the Zeiss Hide where it ws performing well, alongside many of its European counterparts, and three Spotted Redshanks were on South Lake. A late afternoon visit to Frampton to see a flock of Waxwings was unsuccessful, but I did return on Sunday morning to see the 22 birds feeding on Mistletoe atop the trees along the Perry Way. I also had another peek at the Long-eared Owl at the reed-bed south of Splatt Bridge, and a visit to Green Lane produced a Little Stint on the 100-acre. Today, two Little Egrets were present on the pool alongside the ring-road at Hempsted both this morning on the way in to work, and again this evening on the way home.
