Yesterday heralded a new 'home' patch tick as a Water Rail screeched deep from a stand of marsh that is developing in the low lying areas of the field across the railway from home.
I tried to have a poke round the sewage works but found little aside from a big flock of Chaffinch and a Grey Heron I spooked from somewhere. Goldcrests called but no Chiffchaff yet. A male Bullfinch was the first I had seen in a while.
Back to the usual trail down by the beck side and nothing much to shout about apart from failing to photograph the juvenile Grey Wagtail which was messing about by the water.
