18.02.18. Birdlog.

The marsh was quite good despite the dull weather. No.1 tank had 3 Stonechat (1 male and 2 female) and a pair of Greylag Goose.

Brook Furlong had a pair of Bullfinch and a few Goldcrest with the Long Tailed Tits and Blue Tit.

The dead white bird on No.3 is a Mute Swan, I had a closer look and disturbed a Common Snipe.

There were dozens of Pied Wagtail on the flooded field on Lordship Marsh with a dozen or so Linnet but no pipits when I was there.

The only Raptors were Kestrel dotted all over and a single Common Buzzard on No.6. No.6 had Golden Plover with Lapwing, a Black-tailed Godwit and 2 Redshank.

Observer and images: Paul Crawley.

I saw the Whooper Swan herd on two occasions from my moving vehicle along the M56, heading west this morning and heading east this evening. The birds were in fields between the blue slurry tank and the motorway Also two dead Badger (victims of traffic strikes).

Observer: WSM.
