Garganey Watch update - still none

w/c 8th March 2010

The two Garganeys at Rush Hills on Sunday seems to be a false dawn so far. There has been a clearout of wildfowl at Whitlingham, with only Tufted Ducks and 15ish Pochard in the conservation area. The only new arrival was an all-white Domestic Goose, which remained too far out for me to get some black paint on its primaries. A couple of Cetti's Warblers are now singing, and the resident Kingfisher is still zipping along the south side of the Little Broad. Other than that, the only sighting of interest was a roost of 30+ Magpies in the Alders on the north side of the Great Broad. On the bright side, it was light enough for me to see some birds after work, which can only be a good thing. Chiffchaffs are probably only 1-2 weeks off too.
