Arrived at about 2p.m. and saw 3 Black-tailed Godwits on the scrape. In the reserve good-size Tit flock mainly LTT and Blue, a good flock of at least 16 Goldfinch, but in the field to the South, what I’ve been expecting for some time now, – a Cattle Egret, with the Cows. Sadly, when I returned a few minutes later with camera, it had moved on! Compensation came in the form of the female Marsh Harrier. As I left a Greenshank had appeared on the scrape.
