A38 Heathfield & Stover

The pair of Goosanders were present on Stover lake until 9.20am when they flew off having been constantly disturbed by an uncontrolled dog !! Small pockets of Snipe in the reed margins but the same dog flushed them as well !! Pair of Great Crested Grebe showing interest in each other, other than that usual lake residents in view.

Greenwoodpecker could be heard calling but not seen.

On the A38 opposite Candy Tiles initially 8 Waxwings feeding on the berry bushes in the central reservation of the A38, they in turn were joined by another 4 then another 2, but as the wind picked up they seem loath to remain exposed and dropped away on the Heathfield side of the A38

Female Peregrine drifted over when I first arrived at location
