Not much about but the sound of cetti’s and water rail was a joy to hear,these two can almost be relied upon here now.A returning oyestrcatcher was new today,I had been expecting it,similar date each year.Marston year list now up to 76 sp.P1040469

I was alarmed to see some habitat destruction as contractors were hacking down all the thick scrub along the railway embankment.This was an area I’d been searching for long-eared owl.No chance now.P1040472

Took a few shots the other evening in low afternoon light.
