A free morning

A walk from the estuary gate along the sea wall to freemans pool and back again along the cycle path revealed the following birds;

1 blackcap singing in the high trees again at estuary gate.
2 LRP's on the flood
Pair of teal on wildfowlers
2 lapwing chicks near wildfowlers pool - safe from any disturbance from the preparation of the stubble fields.
Present on the stubble fields and therefore not quite safe - another lapwing chick and a pair of grey partridge
10 singing common whitethroats, 2 singing sedge warblers, 2 lesser whitethroats and a willow warbler also.
Mute swans nesting on Freemans and darter pool.
3 oystercatcher pairs scattered round the area.
Displaying curlew near trig hill. This is an annual occurence in this area. Do they breed up there???
