Sightings at Sculthorpe Moor (2nd September 2017)

An usually quiet day at Sculthorpe, but probably not all that surprising given the time of year. The weather was reasonably warm, throughout the morning, with temperatures remaining steady at around 18°C.

The following was seen since 8.00am:
Chaffinch x 4
Bullfinch x 1
Great Spotted Woodpecker x 3
Little Egret x 1

Common Sandpiper x 1 - The single bird initially landed near the Paul Johnson hide and disappeared, but it then made a brief reappearance and flew into the reed bed.

Jay x 8
Kestrel x 2
