Wrafton area

Excellent morning around the Marsh:  2 Black-tailed Godwits still on the scrape with Shelduck and Little Egret. In the reserve; Goldcrest, Reed Bunting and another visit to the perch from a Little Egret. Around Sherpa Marsh a single Swallow, the White Reed Bunting a Whimbrel, a Lapwing, and best of all, a high flying Hobby catching and devouring insects on the wing as it circled lazily Northwards. Late news from last Tuesday: a female Cuckoo in the reserve - regret I didn't recognise the very loud bubbling call, but not seen subsequently.
