15th November 2008
I managed to get out between 3.30 and 5pm today - light was already failing when I arrived. My aim was to look out for Bittern at dusk in the area where it has been seen regularly in previous winters. Unfortunately no sign but I will keep trying when I have the opportunity.
I did see a flyover Little Egret, 2-3 Grey Wagtail on the Millstream, a calling Chiffchaff, 6+ Goldcrest, several calling Water Rail and a Cettis Warbler. Interestingly no Redwing around.
Light of course too poor for any pictures.....
