Carlton Marsh

It felt slightly warmer today until the snow came at teatime. First thing this morning Redshank and Greenshank on the wader scrape. (R.J. Boland) Then they were joined by a Little Ringed Plover at 10.00hrs, but it gone by 15.00hrs.
2 Water Rails were 'Sharming' on the main marsh and 2 pairs of Willow Tit were also present.
Greater Stitchwort and Dog Violet are now in flower here.
