Garganey (M)
A drake Garganey turned up on the Finger lakes on Saturday, found by TP. DK called me to let me know it was there and I managed to catch up with it on my way back from 100 Acre. I also had my first Sedge Warbler of the year on the south side of the Sewage Works Bridge. There was a second in the sewage works compound.

On 100 Acre were 3 Little Ringed Plovers, 3 Snipe, 3 Redshank, a pair of Wigeon and a Cetti’s Warbler down by the mooring place on the river. There seem to be at least 5 Cetti's Warblers in and around the park with the usual 2 (Crescent and Sewage Works Bridge), this one on 100 Acre and another reported in the week at Cardington Lock along with a second near the Crescent.

The Garganey was still around on Sunday.
