COMMON SCOTER still on Stewartby

The juvenile COMMON SCOTER still at Stewartby at 12.30 today.

Rookery South is pretty dry now apart from the pools in the southeast corner and a few small wet bits at the north end. Still a few birds of interest though: 3 Little Egret, 4 Grey Heron, 65 Teal, 2 Buzzard, 10 Siskin and quite a few Common Darters still on the wing, including several pairs in cop, making the most of the warm autumn sunshine.

What a lovely day (David Fisher - Sandy)
