10.11.17. Birdlog.

A very brief visit this evening with a walk along the track between sludge tanks 5,6 and 3 and walking back in the dark.

A Cetti’s Warbler was calling from the reed bed while the Starling roost was down to a few thousand this probably down to strong wind and heavy cloud forcing birds into their roost before our arrival at 15.40 hrs.

It was really good to watch the Wigeon, Tufted Duck and Shoveler whizzing overhead as we walk in the gloom, followed by low flying Canada Goose.

A Marsh Harrier was still hunting in the dark and a Merlin raced across No.3 tank flushing out Common Teal from the concealed pools there.

Observers: Sparky & WSM.
