Wednesday 4th November 2015

A rather grey, misty and at times wet day. Noteworthy sightings included a ringtail Hen Harrier that was seen on several occasions out over the grazing marsh and around the Broadwater, a Kingfisher, Barn Owl, Spotted Redshank, two Grey Wagtails, a pair of Stonechats, Cetti's Warbler and a Tawny Owl that was heard calling from the pines. Two more Water Pipits were also trapped and ringed our 6th and 7th of the autumn.
