A really dull and wet day. We decided to go out anyhow. Leaving our village of Cesseras we were pleased to see a young male Merlin flash across the road. This species is quite scarce here so a bonus.
We checked Lac de Jouarre but only one Tufted Duck and c300 Mallard. Two Great Crested Grebes also there and 12 Cormorant and a couple of Yellow-legged Gulls.
Despite checking two more sites nothing except three Cirl Buntings.
