After some essential and disruptive works around the scrape recently, (a sewage pipe was dug in to link the big shed with the sewage system) finally had a Black-tailed Godwit on the scrape this morning, there have been some Black-headed Gulls the last few days, but not much else.

Ringing in the reserve of late has garnered 9 Blackcaps, 4 Goldcrest, 2 Chiffchaff, 2 Cetti's Warbler, a Reed Warbler (latest ever here) 9 Blackbirds, the first 5 Greenfinch of the winter, Great Spotted Woodpecker and the 16th Kingfisher of the year. Plus all the usual suspects.

Also in the reserve this morning: 2 Raven. a Grey Heron over.

The first Meadow Pipits of the Winter in the surrounding field appeared in the last couple of days.
