An enjoyable couple of hours yesterday morning at Wheldrake Ings, revealed similar birds to the other day, although the Great Egret was elsewhere. Two Cetti's Warblers were present in the reedbed, one of which was singing frequently and showed well in at tree next to Swantail Hide. A Crossbill flew over, as did 30 Golden Plovers. Several Stonechats were still around; it is good to see this species bouncing back after the weather-related population crash a few years back. A bit of flooding on Bank Island has attracted some ducks, with several Pintails and Shovelers the pick.
