Met the three Swedish birders who are doing a Big Western Palearctic Year List.
They had spent much of the month on Corvo in the Azores and were now looking for the Wilson’s Phalarope.
2 Buzzardsand a Marsh Harrier were quartering the saltmarsh and a Green Sandpiper flew from a near dyke – white rump gleaming in the sun.
Deep into TQ Great Crested Grebes were again numerous in the channels—-a duck Red–breasted Merganser was trailing two of the grebes. Beyond FSB, the island`s margins were lined with Wigeon; a conservative count of 1600—no doubt accounting for the flocks leaving Mocketts earlier.
These are the species recorded in the area so far this year. over Sheppey and on the Swale, and on adjacent areas to the reserve itself, west to Uplees copse and in the trees and scrub opposite the cottages.

A male Marsh Harrier harried by a continuously vocal Raven over the W flood was a good start—20 Greenfinches were at Dan`s Dock and Skylarksong greeted the sun`s warmth.Middle to Late Archaic Period Changes in Terrestrial Resource Exploitation along the Los Peñasquitos Creek Watershed in Western San Diego County: Vertebrate Faunal Evidence from the Scripps Poway Parkway Site (CA-SDI-4608) [JCGBA].

A Raven flew low over the cottages at 10.15 am and, later, one was seen circling over Mockett’s Hill.A Greenshank was in Faversham Creek, a juvenile Curlew Sandpiper was with Dunlin just east of the slipway, two juvenile Common Terns flew down the Swale and a Rock Pipit was just below the sea wall near the slipway. Noted there were c200 Avovets roosting with the Black-tailed Godwits and a group of ten Bar-tailed Godwits separate from the main godwit flock.It fell to me to tell them that it hadn’t been seen since Sunday! Unfortunately, Wilson’ Phalarope was not to be their 728 A cool SW at 11deg. Greenfinch numbers exceeded 20 at Uplees copse; Golden Plovers came high off the Sheppey shoreline; Meadow Pipits were mobile around the piles of Bladder-wrack and 2 Rock Pipits were with them.
