Bob Bland and I made for Stodmarsh this morning to try and see two,possibly three juvenile BLACK CROWNED NIGHT HERONS that have been reported in the area over the past week or more.We made straight for Collard`s lake where most of the sightings have come from and as luck would have it we found one after only about five minutes sitting in a bush on the far side of the lake.There was no sign of the others however but they could have been easily sitting somewhere hidden out of view.

Other birds that we saw were Pochard (10) Water Rail,Mallard,Teal (1) Wigeon (1) Mute Swan,Coot,Moorhen,Great crested Grebe,Marsh Harrier (3) Lapwing (4) Song Thrush,Chaffinch,Great Tit,Cetti`s Warbler,Blackcap,Chiffchaff,Robin,Dunnock,Wren,Garden Warbler,Carrion Crow,Reed Warbler,Reed Bunting,Turtle Dove,Sedge Warbler,Jackdaw,Herring Gull,Black-headed Gull,Common Tern,Cormorant,Grey Heron,Nightingale,Magpie,Green woodpecker,Blackbird,Blue Tit,Swallow,Starling,Collared Dove,Goldfnch and Greylag.
