Grovebury on a roll


Well GROVEBURY PIT is on a roll! After last week's juvenile GREAT NORTHERN DIVER (still present today but mobile & elusive), Saturday saw a PIED AVOCET appear briefly with Lapwings and today at lunchtime, a cracking pair of SMEW and 5 immature/female COMMON SCOTERS remained present. Unprecedented rarity action at this little-known site! The PEREGRINE pair were showing well too, sitting on one of the sand spits.....
