The stiff breeze continued to sweep across the marsh but with a sunny disposition I was situated on the track beside the mitigation area on No.3 tank.
Mitigation area of No.3 tank from the banks of No.5 tank.
An overly active Avocet was on the scrapes with 10 Black-tailed Godwit nearby. A couple of Ringed Plover and Lapwing added to a very busy end of April. 27 Raven dwarfed an attendant 17 Jackdaw feeding over the fence from the wet scrape.
The male Marsh Harrier flew over en route to No.4 tank. Whitethroat, Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler and Swallow were about the area.
