Pool Check.

Yesterday (1600-1830hrs) we had a long session at Par which included watching the pool for 90 minutes or so.
Unfortunately nothing of real interest was seen.
2 x Grey Herons.
Moorhens with five chicks.
9 x B.H Gulls
Coots. Ix young Coot
5x Magpies (a family)
Swan Cygnets x3...we never saw the other two.
Cormorant x 1
Grey Wagtails, Dunnocks, Corvids and the usual Canada Geese, Mallards, Herring Gulls and Swans.

The tide was far out and nothing of note was seen...although Angie saw four Sandwich Terns using the scope..

St Andrews was really quiet with nothing worth recording.

Manoa Valley was a lot better with a lot of young birds flying around the trees. Robin, Goldfinches, L.T.Tits, Blue Tits, Chiffchaff and Willow Warblers were all seen.

Porthpean was busy with holiday makers and the Yacht club were out in force. Fulmars, Cormorants, Shag, B.H.Gulls plus a pair of Oystercatchers made up the numbers along with the Herring Gulls.
