Did my WeBS count this morning from Southease Bridge down to Piddinghoe Pond and back. Weather was dreadful with constant heavy rain with a light northerly breeze making it seem colder then it actually was.
Nothing special was recorded but a fair number of species was recorded with the main highlight being an adult Egyptian Goose
that was seen on Piddinghoe Pond before taking off and flying south down river.
Other species included Redshank, Black Headed, Common, Herring, Great and Lesser Black Backed Gulls, Grey Heron, Lapwing, Little Egret, Cormorant, Mallard, Moorhen, Shelduck, Teal, Mute Swan, Little Grebe, Curlew, Coot and Canada Goose.
Another unexpected highlight was a Common Seal
seen several times between Southease and Piddinghoe.
