More on the Ouse

Yesterday, the long-staying Cattle Egret was reportedly still present east of the Ouse, opposite the track from Rodmell (TQ433069). Having pored over my Ordnance Survey map, I think this means it’s technically in Beddingham – a good ‘parish tick’ for bird geeks (such as, well, me).

Nearby, a Cetti’s Warbler called briefly from the reedbed a little to the south, towards Southease Bridge – another good record – and a flock of at least 500 Lapwings in the air over the Brooks, by far the largest local count I’ve heard of this winter.

Thanks to Paul Stevens for these records.
