The Purple Heron showed nicely between approx. 15:15 and 15:45 this afternoon in the 3rd field north of Whitebridge lane, having flown across from the 2nd field. Last seen wandering down into the wet ditch inside the wide hedgerow on the N side of the 3rd field. Stunning bird!
Very little else showing in the cold conditions. Just a scattering of Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs, plus 2-3 Willow Warblers.
