The best bird went over low going NE at 0750hrs, a ringtail harrier, even before I had reached the watchpoint. Otherwise the only moving birds were Yellow Wagtails (2 > NW) and Swifts (34 > NE). All of the resident birds were very vocal, active and very much in evidence. A Whinchat was singing at the lagoons but last weeks Grasshopper Warbler was nowhere to be heard!!
