Water Pipit and Short-eared Owl

3rd April 2009 - mist/fog SE2/3
At least one Water Pipit continues to linger in the flooded horse paddocks along Biggar Bank.
Grounded Migrants
Despite the conditions raising early morning optimism there was little evidence of grounded birds with just 4 Goldcrest, 2 Wheatear and single Fieldfare and Chiffchaff logged.
Diurnal Migration
Meadow Pipits remained on the move despite the low visibility with 50 birds logged, also seen/heard were 2 Sand Martin and 2 alba Wagtail.
A Short-eared Owl emerged out of the gloom to hunt over the island and at least one Little Egret remains.
