26th April 2008 - Grove Ferry

An early morning walk at grove was fairly productive in the lovely weather. A singing Lesser Whitethroat on the track to the ramp was a great start, from the ramp 2 Little ringed Plover were occompanied by the usual Gadwall, Teal, Shoveler and Lapwing. From Harrisons Drove hide 3 further Little ringed Plover were recorded. A singing Grasshopper Warbler showed well on the track to the Marsh Hide which was an added bonus to the day. A quick stop off at the ramp on the way back reveled a stunning Greenshank had dropped in, which ended the morning nicely. Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler and Cettis were also recorded on the rounds along with two singing Cuckoo's. 7 Marsh Harriers, 6 Sparrowhawks and 3 Kestrels showed well overhead. The above picture is of 1 of the 3 Little ringed Plover present from Harrisons Drove hide.
