          Yes Squirrels are good swimmers and it’s not the first time I have seen Grey Squirrels swimming across the Kent.
          Also 2 Great White Egrets on the estuary today and 3 sightings of the Osprey.
          Osprey last seen perched on a partly submerged tree branch opposite Arnside pier for over an hour in the afternoon after high tide.

          Little Egret – 10
          Wigeon – 2
          Plus the usual Redshanks, Curlews and Mallards
