Re: Catcott Lows still lacks water!

1500hrs visit (water level marginally up, now 1.58 above datum!). but still difficult viewing. Several hundred Wigeon present and around 100 Teal; 20 Shoveller scattered around with a few Mallard and 6 Pintail were the highlight. 10 Snipe circled low ,disappearing into the plentiful vegetation plus a G.W. Egret briefly.
En route from Wells via Lewis's Drove on Westhay Moor at 1415 I saw a Cattle Egret in company with 3 Little Egrets opposite the Winrow Nursery in the Maize stubble field
