Sherpa Marsh

07:30 - 09:30

21 Yellow Wagtails still feeding around feet of cattle by barn at SS484351. As I walked around the marsh the cattle followed but the wagtails didn`t.  When I got back to the barn they had all disappeared. Where I wonder?

2 Kingfisher zooming up and down Knowl Water by the bridge.

7 Mediterranean Gulls and 18 Pied Wagtails on the flats below the Toll House with a further 4 Meds at Crossbanks. Also 11 Dunlin and 2 Ringed Plover on that side of the Caen.

On the marsh,  9 Mutes; 3 Little Grebes; c40 Mallard; 10 Meadow Pipits; 2 Reed Bunting  and 2 Wheatear.
