December 24th


A morning session with Sue, Dave and Bernie to watch Harriers out and the Tawny Owl was again calling near the car park on arrival. Grey Heron, Snipe, Greylag, Fieldfare, various Ducks and Cetti's Warbler were all heard in the darkness along the Lampen Wall. Two Woodcock came out of the reed bed behind Tower hide heading off to their daytime roost, 11 Marsh Harriers left their roost and a male Hen Harrier appeared from the north again at 0742. A Little Egret passed over the reserve and out towards Chislet, 2 Kestrel were hovering in the distance and while counting ducks in Tower hide the 2 ringtail Hen Harriers passed through towards Collard's. On the lake were 6 Pochards, 3 Tufted Ducks, 32 Shoveler, 5 Gadwall, 800+ Teal, 1 Little Grebe and 5 Great-crested Grebes. A Kingfisher and a Sparrowhawk flew low over the lake with a large female Sparrowhawk chasing Fieldfare along the boundary road later on. The Long-tailed Duck was still on Seaton north pit viewed distantly from Grove road.
