Reached the 99 after adding four more to the list in the pits this Saturday morning. Waxwings found just north of Westoning were my second flock found of the year and a bit of a surprise as most seemed to have moved through, perhaps they are on their way back ? After last week I did not need to add Scaup but six at Brogborough would have been enough for a steal after only two there last week. Two SFYT though at Marston Vale with a Cettis shouting at me in the WL9 reedbed right next to the vehicular entrance before spotting an Oystercatcher on the island in the Pillinge with some Lapwing. A quick scan of Stewartby and Quest did not give anything for the notebook so it was time to drop into Chimney Corner South which has been good to me this year and once again obliged with a SFYT female Pintail, associating loosely with 70 Wigeon, The ducks here had a brief panic as a Bittern appeared over the bank and flew over the water before dropping into the reeds. This seemed to have come from the North pit so could well have been the bird I found there in early February, perhaps disturbed by the two dog walkers that appeared soon after distantly on the footpath at the back of this pit. A quick look in Rookery on the way back to see if it was suitable for waders and thinking Ringed Plover etc was enough for the 99 but not what had been expected; my first Raven of the year flew over cronking loudly while inspecting all the Teal for the orientation of white stripes.
