Woodcock – 25th October

This morning the Black Swan was still on the Large Gravel Pit. A flock of about forty Lesser Redpoll were feeding on Willow Herb and Meadowsweet along the Lower Path. At one time one with a very pale rump was briefly seen.  A Woodcock was flushed from the willows in the SE corner of the reserve, at the river end of the Boundary Hedge.  PS.
