Wednesday 9th September


After an early morning start peppered with some optimism, the day unfortunately produced no more than a Whinchat and a Pied Flycatcher on the reserve. Two Greenshank and a Spotted Redshank flew over during the morning. Another Pied Flycatcher was seen in the afternoon at Walsey Hills.
