Well it's fairly quiet really, still a Greylag on Bridge marsh, still a Barwit on the Estuary, a lone Gadwall on Monday 23rd, and the Firecrest still at Seaton Hole to 25th at least.

Yes, you can just see enough bright green mantle to i.d. it! Fortunately, other species were more co-operative...

Anyhow, sorry the Firecrest pics weren't better but I'll try again soon. At least I saw it OK and it called a lot, even 'singing' at one point ( if you can call it that ). Dare I say it? "Not a bad day in the Hole"...Ouch... C U next post.
