Patchwatch

Still no summer migrants but plenty of helicopters.  Breezy this afternoon on Lockwood where a Meadow Pipit had me second guessing it could have been something else.  There were three Goldeneye and the continuing pair of Scaup roosted on the westside.  A Chiffchaff called from the woodland on the north end, and a Goldcrest sang from the fir trees adjacent to the Lea.

East Warwick was much more exciting as the Mediterranean Gull reported earlier was still present on the southside.  Scoped from the opposite bank, I then watched it fly toward the filter beds which I'm sure it has been all winter!

Also present there were a Common Snipe flushed from the now sparsely vegetated bank, three Goldeneye and three Shoveler.
