The three Garganey were still present in the channel behind the sluice gate...initially I could only see the two drakes but the duck was so well camouflaged I overlooked her initially!
Fifteen Cattle Egrets were present in Owl Copse but were disturbed by two dogs and made a hasty retreat very soon after this photograph!
The resident Marsh Harrier made a brief but distant appearance
... a male Reed Bunting was partly hidden in a hawthorn oblivious to my presence.
On my return along Whites Creek the regular Spotted Redshank was showing well
A very pleasant hour and I was reminded yet again of how fortunate I am to be able to see such a variety of birds on my doorstep, especially in these difficult times!
