Monday 24th August 2015

After last nights small fall, hopes were high a repeat this morning but unfortunately most of the birds appeared to have departed. On the reserve two Pied Flycatchers remained though and several Garden and Willow Warblers were noted plus a single Redstart. An Icterine Warbler was found early morning in bushes near the firs and along the Broadwater there was a Kingfisher and two Common Sandpipers. Both Short-eared and Barn Owls were noted along the entrance track early morning and five Green and one Wood Sandpiper were on Redwell Marsh.
