Carlton Marsh

This afternoon's exercise walk saw 13 Herring Gulls, 3 Water Rails (1 under the bird feeder), 23 Teal and a pair of Shovelers habitually diving, never once reverting back to dabling mode! Also 8 Fieldfares, Great Spot Woodpecker, Goldcrest, Treecreeper and 35 Magpies roosting.

Cudworth Common 
25 Yellow Buntings, the males looking really good in the sunshine this morning. 12 Reed Buntings, 5 Chaffinches, 20 Fieldfares, Buzzard, kestrel and 8 Canada Geese (Les & Andrew Corrall).

A male Blackcap visited Dave Smiths Carlton garden feeder for the 12th consecutive day. When it isn't on the feeder it languishes in a Laurel bush during the rest of the day.
