Today's special was a flock of about 50 Honey Buzzards coming in to drink. Incredible birds. I usually see one or two around here each Spring but these numbers are really special.
17 Pin-tailed Sandgrouse (3 separate flocks) was an additional bonus.
Other birds included a single Little Bittern, Red-backed Shrike (first I've seen here this year), Great Egret, Purple and Grey Heron, five Night-herons, lots of Squacco Herons, Greenshank, 25+ Ruff. I could have stayed for longer but it was getting ferociously hot and by 09:30 the temperature had risen to 36 C - time to leave the birds and beat a retreat.
