Ditchford WeBS count


In somewhat blustery (and muddy) conditions today, a WeBS count was completed at Ditchford Gravel Pits. A Great White Egret was west of Ditchford Lane as were 17 Egyptian Geese (15 on the Watersport Pit), a juvenile Pink-footed Goose, an adult Peregrine and a first winter Mediterranean Gull.

A Bittern was discovered on the old Skew Bridge Pit and another Great White Egret graced the Wilsons Pits section. As a whole the complex also hosted 6 Little Egrets, 5 Goosanders, 2 Water Rails, 12 Kingfishers, 2 Cetti's Warblers, 10 Chiffchaffs and a Stonechat.
