Weybread GPs, 28 August 2018

A quick walk alongside Ocean Pit at Weybread this afternoon after I'd done my pre-holiday chores.

Initially it was extremely quiet with just 2 Egyptian Geese, 3 Barnacle Geese and c25 Great Crested Grebes. When I'd nearly got to the far end of the pit however things livened up considerably with a couple of patch ticks - a Spotted Flycatcher which showed very nicely with a couple of Garden Warblers in close proximity. A Reed Warbler was sub-singing in waterside Rosebay Willowherb and a Kingfisher was along the Waveney. 3 Willow Warblers were also rather vocal and 3 Lapwings were strangely flycatching over the open water of the pit.
Odonata were also intersting with a very late c10 Red-eyed Damselflies, c6 Common Blue Damselflies, Brown Hawker and Migrant Hawker.
