Carlton Marsh

New in today Garden Warbler (Jim Plant) and Grasshopper Warbler in the northern meadow. 2 more Sedge warblers arrived making 4 in total. 2 Lesser Whitethroats were singing and Cuckoo and green woodpecker were singing in the western meadow. 2 Water Rails gave excellent views commuting between the reedbeds for food. 3 Sand Martins flew north this evening.

Butterflies included Brimstone and Speckled Wood.
