Carlton Marsh

A lovely day for our first scrub bash of the winter. Five us spent a very satisfying two hours removing regenerating Willow and bramble from both sides of the hide on the inner bank of the scrape.
After the disturbance Mute Swan, Kingfisher and a pair of Tufted Duck soon returned with the Mallard, Gadwall and 4 Teal. A buzzard was very vocal and 2 Goldcrests and 2 Willow Tits were amongst the Longtailed tits. 15 Fieldfares flew west this afternoon.

11 Common Darters and a Comma were out in the sun.
