We spent two or three hours here, walking out toward Trimley marsh. They prove quite contrasting to a winter trip, with the summer visitors all having arrived, the first point of note was the number of Swifts and House Martins continually feeding off the insects over the lake.
On the lake its self there were Tufted Duck, Great Crested Grebe, Pochard, Graylag (with Goslings) and Canada (with Goslings). In the reeds we heard both Sedge and Reed Warbler and had very good views of a Cuckoo so obviously looking for a suitable nest. Further up around the fields toward the marsh Whitethroats were very much in evidence sharing the gorse with numerous Long-tailed Tit.
Back along the shore line we had good views of Avocet, Oystercatcher and Little Egret. Life bird count: 369 Year bird count: 206 Month bird count: 56
