A quick visit  to Marston this morning showed five Twite again, singing in a tree on the track close to the car park. Did a bit of texting and soon Dave R. Graham W. and Steve N. turned up. The Twite had joined with a large flock of Linnet and flew towards the works. They came back later to the same tree and were seen by quite a few people:



While they were missing I went further to the Water Rail area and was surprised to find a pair of Cetti’s Warbler had moved out of the thick cover into shorter reed area enabling me to get my first ever (poor) shots, I’ve been waiting four years for this!

While all this was happening I got shots of a Reed Bunting:



And one of the many Skylark displaying mating behaviour:


Marston is coming up with the goods yet again!
