Summer sessions

Two late summer sessions at the water treatment site produced 13 Blackcap 7 Chiffchaff 9 Whitethroat and an assorted supporting cast including this young Lesser Whitethroat. The habitat gets better for post breeding foraging and there were still Whitethroat carrying food . Tantalizing glimpse of a probable Marsh Harrier flying through to the south and a calling Sandwich Tern overhead added to the excitement.

Woodpecker Day.

 Juvenile Green Woodpecker.
We also caught a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker. It was also great to catch 17 new Reed Warblers for the year, including 4 recently fledged, our first of the year.
