Forgot to mention that yesterday evening in willows at the east end of Wrafton pond was a roost of at least 30 Magpies. James reported that the three Spoonbills flew off mid-morning, but later, a single bird returned for a while. About 20 Pied Wagtails with Meadow Pipits on the flooded part of the field. In the reserve 2 Chiffchaffs, and the remains of another Moorhen. Not sure what took it, looks more likely to have been a badger.
