29.03.15. Birdlog (British Summer Time)
A blustery walk around the muddy tracks bordering No.6 tank was interrupted several times by four scramble bikers enjoying the solitude of the marshes (bless them!).
The only ducks present on the choppy and exposed waters of No.6 tank were 34 Mallard and 12 Common Shelduck, everything had the sense to find shelter from the blustery westerly wind elsewhere.
A flock of Ravens were taking advantage of the updraft from the banks of No.2 tank and were rising and tumbling for fun.
No.3 tank fared little better with birds but several Shoveler, common Teal, Gadwall, Redshank and Ruff were keeping low to reduce their wind chill exposure. The sun came out during our saunter and showcased No.6 in gold and blues.
We walked up to what is remaining of the reed beds on No.4 tank and the contractors were having time out when we were there. It gave me the opportunity in getting some images for future reference and some of which are included below.
