El Clot – Malcolm Palmer

posted in: Sightings | 0

Best morning since lockdown, and I only went to the Clot. All eight heron species you can reasonably expect here (Squacco Heron, Night Heron, Purple Heron, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Cattle Egret, Great White Egret, Little Bittern).

Lots of Whiskered and Black Terns. Proof of breeding for 3 species of Grebe (Little Grebe, Great Crested Grebe, Black necked Grebe) plus Pochard and Red Crested Pochard. Reed and Great Reed Warbler still singing. Glossy Ibis, 2 Kingfishers.
