Three Siskins over Dempsey Towers this morning, with Redwings calling in the darkness last night as the low cloud and mist finally began to break up.
Yesterday I did a circuit round the marsh, with a ringtail Hen Harrier distant in the mist, scaring the pants off Starlings and Skylarks as it quartered the outer marsh, and the usual assortment of Mipits, Skylark and Goldfinch in the Sandplant compound.
Few Golden Plovers passing high-ish.
Nels Hide had the Blackwit roost, half a dozen Ruff and four Curlew Sandpiper, amongst the wildfowl and Lapwings.
Another Curlew Sandpiper with Ruff on Crossens Outer, plenty of Little Egrets, and a juv Marsh Harrier out there too, when it wasn't getting Carrion Crow hassle.
And on a far more exotic note, thanks to Ron Jackson for sending me this link to his video footage from a recent trip to Brazil, ah, all those lovely Latin American birdies, takes me back...
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
