Pego Marsh – Len Williamson

posted in: Birders Reports | 0

Pete, Nigel, Darrel and I had a walk round Pego Marshes today and I include the list of species we saw.  Real excitement seeing the two released Osprey pairs and seeing one of them very close up.  Pictures are from Darrel.  We met part of the team introducing the Ospreys.  Interestingly he told us that he is collaborating with the hunting community to ensure they do not shoot our key guests during the hunt season.  He also advised us that they are hoping to introduce Water Buffalo into Pego Marshes within an electric fence within the next couple of months.

Species list – Night Heron, Purple Heron, Grey Heron, Squacco Heron, Glossy Ibis, Little Egret, Cattle Egret, Black winged Stilt, Little Ringed Plover, Green Sandpiper, Mallard, Moorhen, Woodpigeon, Osprey, Hoopoe, Barn Swallow, House Sparrow, White Wagtail, Reed Warbler, Zitting Cisticola, Common Starling, Goldfinch.
