Martin news and a homeward detour

No pictures today, but I was right about getting the martin bank done just in time, there were at least 6 Sand Martins over Ibsley Water today. At least two of the Black-necked Grebes were seen as was a Bittern from the Goosander hide and 2 Mediterranean Gulls as I locked up on the spit to the east of the Tern hide.

I went to Holmsley Gravel Pit, one of the other sites I also have watch over, on the way home and en route passed the Great Grey Shrike on the wires south of Burley. At Holmsley GP there were 29 Canada Geese, a Greylag Goose, about 10 Teal, 6 Tufted Ducks, 2 Snipe and 2 Fieldfare in the trees.
