A bit more going on today with three Little Egrets on the scrape together with a Green Sandpiper, a couple of Snipe and the first pair of Shoveler for a while. The reed bed was still quiet apart from a family of Reed Warblers in the usual bush by the track and a couple of Water Rail calling. Still plenty of Butterflies and Hoverflies on the Dandelion and Sow Thistle. Even though it was around 1230 when I left the moon was up – Autumn is on it’s way!
