Spotted Flycatcher – 25th August

This morning a flock of about 140 House Martins, 40 Swallows and one or two Sand Martins were on the wires by the railway bridge. Also there were two juvenile Pied Wagtails and a juvenile Yellow Wagtail. Along the Lower Path in a walnut tree near the signal box were two Spotted Flycatchers with Blackcaps, Garden Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat. PS.

There was also a report of a Great White Egret circling the site late morning. NH.

Cetti’s Warbler – 6th March

A cold wind was blowing as we walked around the site today but a pair of Grey Wagtails and a pair of Pied Wagtails did not seem too bothered by it, even though the male Grey Wagtail’s tail was blown right over his back at one time. The Cetti’s Warbler was heard in the Deep pit and the pair of Peregrines was perched on a pylon  ( is this a different pair to those seen on the Newton Building ?). Three Water Rail were heard on the Slurry Lagoon and a Willow Tit was heard along the Lower Path. PS/AE/AR/DG/PG/RW.
