PURPLE HERON reappears

The first-summer PURPLE HERON was relocated at Brogborough Lake this afternoon but flew quickly east and returned to Lagoon 9 at Marston Vale Millenium Park. It then flew again and went back down in the small pool between Rookery North and South Pit (Andy Plumb, Martin Green, and others).

The BAR-TAILED GODWIT passage petered out by 0900 hours, with a further flock of 16 through Broom (Steve Blain) and 3 with a Common Greenshank at Willington GP (Tim Robson)

At Harlington, the confiding SHORT-EARED OWL remains
