Found several of these cheeky chappies recently whilst cutting the grass. One at Swanick and two at Farlington, right in the middle of the main marsh. Wouldn’t really have expected them there. Glad to see them about though, not something I particularly see a lot of these days.
We were cutting around the ditch that bisects the main marsh today, again to clear some nice grazing spots for the prospective wildfowl. I had a wander over to the scrape and was greeting by a cloud of Lapwing, two Green Sandpipers, a Common one and a Ringed Plover. There was also a Marsh Harrier and two Ravens flying around.
Things should hopefully be building up soon. No sign of any Wheatears or Yellow Wags yet but they can’t be far away.
