09.00 - 12.00
Had a slow walk along the track from the crossroads towards the sewage works and a few things of interest. There were up to 12 Robin and a few more Chaffinch flitting about. A Blackcap and a few Chiffchaff in the bushes. 2 Flocks of Long-tailed Tits, a GS Woodpecker and 2 Jays. A pair of Grey Wagtails and 8 Pied Wagtails near the works. A Comma and Speckled Wood here as well. On the river a GC Grebe, Dunlin 250, Lapwing and Curlew along with up to 8 Little Egrets. The 2 Barnacles still present. A large number of river birds were disturbed by something, on the return walk I bumped into a couple who thought they had seen a Marsh Harrier, I missed it as I was pishing yet more Robins and Wrens! Definitely not a Buzzard as this was still circling above. A Raven and Kestrel was also seen and 2 Skylark and Linnets.
