Beautiful conditions today to take a visiting French birder around. Highlights were an Aussie Bittern (on the Borrow Pits in clear view on the bank) and a Spotted Crake (on the Conservation Ponds). Also had immature Sea Eagle, Black-shouldered Kite and Sparrowhawk and a Song Thrush.

Some birds were present in HUGE numbers - I have never seen so many Little Black Cormorants (by "Cormorant Jetty"), Avocet (by the hide) or Straw Necked Ibis (T-section). Yet we saw only one White Fronted Chat the entire day - normally one of the commonest birds around the place.
