Ludwell Valley - Matford - Cattle Egret

7 or 8 Green Sandpiper between Ludwell Lane and Woodwater Lane. Nothing much on the Northbrook otherwise (council adding new paths and clearing away undergrowth, so no Dipper, no Grey Wags, no Water Rail bur brief glimpse of Kingfisher). Nothing unusual on Matford Marshes but in the fields behind the Storage Unit depot on Sannerville Way between the railway and the canal a Cattle Egret with 18 mute swans. Quite flighty but did not fly far. Approx grid ref SX946887
