07.05.18 (May Bank Holiday Monday). Birdlog.

There was a single female Wheatear on pipes that cross No.1 tank and then two between the pipes and the Marsh Farm plus a male aswell. A female Sparrowhawk rested on a fence near to the farm, there were lots of Linnet, again Whitethroat and a Cetti’s Warbler calling at both ends of Brook Furlong Lane.

A couple of Speckled Wood Butterflies by the old log along with a strange coloured hoverfly called Leucozona lucorum. No.6 had 2 Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Grey Heron and a few ducks.

Observer: Paul Crawley (images 1-4).

A couple of Stonechat by the Weaver Bend were the only highlight. A Marsh Harrier was over No.6 and nearby 5 Avocet, 1 Black-tailed Godwit and a Barnacle Goose sweltering in the hot weather!

Observer: Sean O’Hara.
