|Willow Warbler - Still Singing Today!
It's been a little while since my last visit to Brandon Marsh and having met up with some of the guys at first light this morning it was apparent that things have been pretty quiet during my absence. From a purely selfish point of view it was good to know that I hadn't missed out on anything special of late.
|Hobby - Two On Site Today!
The reserve is now beginning to take on a different look with the autumnal colours now starting to show through and the various berries now almost ripe. As is usual for the time of year there were several Tit flocks around to dissect. By the time I'd scrutinised each flock, helped by the now thinning foliage, I'd managed of note: 14 Long-tailed Tit - 1 Willow Tit - 3 Goldcrest - 6 Willow Warbler and 2 Chiffchaff, so well worth the effort! There are still plenty of Swallows moving through along with the odd House Martin and while passing Farm Pool a second Hobby of the day had an unsuccessful attempt to take one for breakfast.
A nice return to the great outdoors and now it's all systems go for France on Thursday!
