Longham Patch 18th March

Had a very good morning at the lakes the long staying Great White Egret was on the large island in south lake with two Little Egrets.
The wintering duck have departed as no sign of any Pochard or Wigeon only 3 Shoveler and 6 Teal and 6 Gadwall.
Singing Chiffchaffs calling Cetti’s Warblers, c20 Sand Martin ( first count was 6 then out of now were there was a more appeared and counted all a long the west side of south Lake) and a wonderful sight and sound of 103 Mediterranean Gulls settled on South Lake.
Looks like the farmer of Hampreston fields as been busy cleaning out the ditch and cutting some willow down along the ditch and on the river.
Up to 71 species seen now with the Sand Martins  it was good to see them back.
