Sunday 24th January
A visit today between 8.15 and 10.30.
It took a while today to get properly light so only took photo's in the last hour of my visit. Good numbers of Redwing and Fieldfare in the West Scrub and the heronry on the Medway is very active now. A trudge through the Sunken Marsh and found my first Cettis of the year. Not much else here but good to see the numbers of Reed Bunting and Bullfinch remaining high for the area. A Sparrowhawk flapped and glided along the Medway where there were around 40 Teal.
Back over to Little Lunsford Lake and only one Goldeneye there today. Managed to get a few pics as the light had improved.
Another visit late on for Bittern and luckily enough one landed in the reeds at the end of the Millstream Lake at 5pm. A few Water Rail calling and Fieldfare/Redwing over.
