Thurlestone Bay

A very quiet day in the Bay. Thurlestone Marsh last night the first Satarling roost with 50 birds on the wires at 20.30.

This morning the female Pochard still on the front pool , also the adult female Marsh Harrier over the reeds.
 Went for a walk round the whole of SOUTH MILTON LEY- talking with Bob B he is concerned about the low numbers of Reed/ Sedge this year . My totals were -  8 Reed Warbler/ 5 Sedge , 2 blackcap,  2 Whitethroat, 2 Reed Bunting, 10 Chiffchaff.

Has anyone else noticed any similar reductions on their local patch?
