Highlight today was a single RAVEN mid morning seen over the north end of the pit complex sparring with a Common Buzzard and then a Sparrowhawk, before it was slowly lost from view distantly to the north-west. Also this morning were 4 Ruff briefly, 4 Dunlin, Turnstone through, 4 Ringed Plover, Little Ringed Plover, Greenshank, Red Kite, Peregrine and Hobby. 6 Buzzards were circling together over the visitors' centre around midday.

(Meanwhile, nearby Grafham Water today claimed a mega seabird in the form of a SOOTY SHEARWATER, which showed well all afternoon off the dam.)
