The Brick Pits first thing today

Rookery Pit -
Dunlin 2
Black-tailed Godwit 1
Lt Ringed Plover at least 1
Yellow Wagtail, Lsr Whitethroat, Sparrowhawk
Only 1 Teal left, but 4 drake Shovelers. Two pairs Pochard. BH Gulls seem to
have deserted their nests

Stewartby Lake -
in a quick look, not a lot. 4 Common Terns but nothing else of interest over the
water. An Oystercatcher and a couple of Lsr Whitethroats. Many more Common
Whitethroats than last week

Millbrook Station area -
Cetti's Warbler heard from MVCP , Cuckoo over, Garden Warbler and Lsr
Whitethroat. Again several C Whitethroats, so a good arrival of those in the
last few days.
