This morning; the characteristic weak drumming of a Lesser Pecker heard clearly from the trees around the sailing club buildings - but it's frustratingly difficult to get near because of the flood water. Later from the bird hide a large female Goshawk flying low over the water and trying in vain to spook wildfowl into the air, also six Sand Martins on the lake and six Common Redpolls in the Alders just to the right of the hide.

Good views of the female Red-br Merganser and drake Scaup close in to the Crannog Hut at lunchtime today. Beware depth of floodwater! Also 29 Curlew on 'Acorn Field' but no sign of the Gann-ringed bird.

A flock of gulls disturbed from the fields adjacent to beacons park today gave me about 80 Lesser Black-backs, 3 Herrings, 11 Black-headed and to my surprise a Common Gull. There were also about 500 starlings feeding in the same sheep field.

The Curlew flock has increased to 56 but they are very flighty. "Black 18" is still with them. The Red-breasted Merganser was off the crannog. Also 19 Lapwing and a Little Egret. The Shelduck was flying around and the Mandarin was looking good in breeding plumage.
