A Quiet Morning

6th March - quite cold this morning, but reasonably bright.  None of the hoped for migrants and little of note.

I walked a circuit around the lake.  In a reedbed in the NE corner, my attention was drawn to some noisy movement of the reeds.  A Water Rail was walking around, feeding and paid me little attention.  I tried a record shot and was surprised to get a semi-recognisable image through the mass of stems.


I also got a year tick with a Little Grebe in the bay next to the workings.  Nothing else was noted in the walk around the northern perimeter until a small digger flushed a Green Sandpiper from the small stream next to the entrance road.  It flew off towards the STW calling as it went.
