I Smell Winter

A very pleasant day, cold, crisp, and relatively clear, but pretty routine birdwise.

The Marshes were very soggy, the north marsh is practically submerged by the rainfall over the last couple of days.  Not even wellies were sufficient enough to access the north-east corner.

A Chiffchaff was present in horseshoe thicket, and a male Blackcap appeared in scrub along the eastern edge of north marsh.  A lone Meadow Pipit sat along the fenceline of the Paddocks with around forty Pied Wagtail there. 

The Waterworks produced two Water Rail, 12 Teal, 10 Tufted Duck, a pair of Gadwall, and a Sparrowhawk.
