Sherpa Marsh, Velator warblers...

A morning walk around Sherpa Marsh, avoiding the closed footpath. 18 Canada Geese, numerous MallardTeal, at least one Reed Bunting, heard at least 4 Cettis calling and saw 6 silent Chiffchaff. Unfortunately disturbed at various points 9 Snipe which merely settled further along the Marsh, thankfully.  Sadly the plentiful plastic shotgun cartridge waddings are testament to the wildfowlers who take their pleasure but can't pick up after themselves :( No sign of any further Sand Martins.....yet.
