Bratton Fleming and Wrafton scrape

Out yesterday near Bratton Fleming while photographing a Spotted Flycatcher and a Chiffchaff a Great Spotted Woodpecker landed in a tree above. Later I moved on the Wrafton pond (no birds there) though life on the scrape was much better.  Two Ruffs, a few female Shovelers and around 17.00 hours six Cattle Egret flew-in and landed on the far side.
