Hook - Sprinkle Pill

After a period of absence, Little Egrets are favouring the pill again, with 7 here yesterday and today. A couple of hundred Teal are still present and a few more Wigeon than appeared on last week's WeBS count. A teal, with its head on one side and watching the sky intently, prompted me to lift my head from the 'scope. A small falcon was crossing the pill mouth, a Merlin, only the second that I have seen in Hook.
