Carlton Marsh

It was another glorious day with plenty of sunshine, the temperature just one decimal point shy of 16c.
A walk round this morning provided 29 Canada and 6 Greylag Geese, Cormorant, 9 Tufted Duck, 2 Little Grebe, 2 Kingfisher, Little Egret, 33 Gadwall, 4 Lapwing, Grey Wagtail, 4 Chiffchaff singing, 2 Buzzard, 4 Skylark and Goldcrest singing.
A Fox ran past the wader scrape at 10.00hrs and 2 Comma butterflies were abroad.
2 Peregrine Falcons were reported flying over the wader this afternoon. (Tony Harding) Paul Jackson tweeted another one stooping into the reserve at 16.20hrs.
Later in the day at dusk Dave Standish had 2 Redshank, Barn Owl and Little Egret as it came in to roost.
