Just a quick update - A great find by our Warden Mike of a Juvenile Slavonian grebe this afternoon on Singleton lagoon, it was really enjoying the sticklebacks and shrimps by the looks when I went to have a look so lets hope it stays around for tomorrow.
Its always nice to see scarce grebes - the last record of slavonian was would you believe it way back in 2011 - On Singleton!
Also about on site today was the long staying scaup, 300 fieldfares, hen harrier in to roost, merlin, barn owl, water pipits and plenty of marsh harriers. Also quite a few whooper swans around and thousands of starlings going over site on their way to roost.
