I had plans for today and the weather was good enough but somehow I ended up over the Forest.
I reported a week or so ago that one of the Grebes had died frozen in the ice. I had heard that a second had turned up and today two Grebes were displaying and on top of that there was a third!!
After lunch I took my first visit to Rye Meads. It was very bird light, there wasn't even a Green Sandpiper!! Highlight were 4 common gulls.
Well that isn't true, the highlight was this chap. They look better opened up.
