However a brief visit to Rockford Lake revealed the Great-white Egret at close range, and quickly flew in the direction of Mockbeggar before equipment could be arranged. By late afternoon the Great-white was located on Mockbeggar and 2 Bewick's Swan returned to Ibsley prior to dusk.

There was no sign of any Bewick's Swan amongst the Mutes at Ibsley by Midday but a drake Goosander was located on the River Avon. There was also no sign of the Great-white Egret on Mockbeggar or Ivy Lakes. But Siskin and Kingfisher entertained in torrential down poors.
