This morning a Raven flew over the site, carrying a corn-on-the-cob, a Snipe flew over the Causeway and a Water Rail flew in front of the bench, one of up to eight heard. PS.
As the Starlings came to roost this evening a Merlin dashed in and caught one of their number. Later the geese came in and what may have been a Woodcock flew past, in the gloom. PS.
The Peregrine was sitting on his favourite pylon this afternoon making sorties over the ploughed field but I didn’t see him catch anything. In the Ouse Dyke two Little Egrets were again fishing and on the Large Gravel Pit the five Red-crested Pochard are still present. JMD.
