I was down the marsh today, nothing new but I finally managed to photograph one of theĀ Cetti’s Warbler. ItĀ seemed to stay deep down in the brambles but this one came up long enough for me to get a couple of shots.

A scarce record was a pair of Bullfinch along Brook Furlong Lane and also a count of 28 Raven around Marsh Farm, other than that nothing exceptional.

I dropped into the marsh towards dusk as I was passing. The water level is still reducing in size on No.6 tank with plenty of ducks concentrated and included: c200 Common Shelduck, 43 Gadwall, 7 drake Common Pochard and 150 Mallard.

The Black-tailed Godwit flock was down to c100 birds and ten Dunlin joined them before they headed out with a loose godwit flock to the estuary.
