Weekend Roundup – 30th Sept – 3rd Oct

The warm weather continued thru-out, ensuring the tee-shirts and shorts stayed out of the winter closet, and the factor 30 slap was blathered on foreheads and bald patches alike.

After the Yorkslisters cameo on Friday evening dropping in on the Pec Sand and getting himself a Mere tick (and keeping his pecker up from Thursday) what else could found at the Mere. As Saturday dawned the was Pec was still about but spent most of the day on the spit that runs off Swan Island, only getting briefly onto the shore of 2nd field a handful of times. A small band of birders got themselves on a Mere pelagic and managed to get some belting views of the Pec on the spit (checkout Martin Standleys blog for pics), and then picking up on a Great White Egret as it cut out West over the Mere around 11.00. Thankfully the Egret was located at the West end by Steve Webb early afternoon enabling at least 7 birders to connect, and spent 3 hours down there until it flew off West around 16.26. A Bittern was also seen by a visiting crew from the Hull Valley. 2 Kingfisher, and 8 Pintail also noteworthy.

Sunday and the Pec was still about yet again mostly on the spit. A couple of Rock pipits where picked up late afternoon on KP.

Monday 3rd Oct, Pec still present till 13.30 at least on spit, 2 Dunlin, 1 Ringed Plover, 1 Common sand, 3 Little Egrets, 1 Peregrine, 3 Marsh Harrier, 1w Med Gull, 103 House Martin, 8 Swallow.
