Carlton Marsh

Rain at first sunny spells for the rest of the day 11c SW moderate. 

The drake Pochard was still present with 3 pairs of Tufted Ducks, Little Egret, Coal Tit, Redpoll and a singing Chiffchaff

This evening at dusk Cetti's Warbler, Tawny Owl, 7 Snipe left, 2 Water Rails called and the Bittern came in low from the southern part of the marsh to its favourite reed bed at 18.21hrs (I mistakenly put 16.21hrs on Twitter). 5 minutes later it climbed to to the top of the reeds and could be seen until it got dark (Dave Standish/CG).
