29.03.19. Birdlog.

Image may contain: plant, outdoor and nature

A walk around No.6 tank in glorious sunshine with the background sound of Chiffchaff and 4 Cetti’s Warbler filling the air.

The shallow waters of the sludge tank held a Little Grebe, 24 Coot, 16 Tufted Duck, 17 Northern Shoveler, 20 Eurasian Teal, 6 Gadwall and a handful of Mallard.

A couple of Marsh Harrier were actively chasing a Common Buzzard while the ringtail Hen Harrier was performing really well.

Walking back along Lordship Lane and a Short-eared Owl perched on a post didn’t linger for long.

An estimate of c200 Raven were heading south for the night.

Observers: JS & WSM.
