Carlton Marsh

Not much wildfowl today because BMBC Rangers were busy cutting the islands and some neighbouring trees and scrub. It's always great to have them, they do the big jobs that we volunteers can't do. However, due to forthcoming cut backs they are going to be thin on the ground after next April! 

There were the usual passerines, which included 2 Siskin, 2 Goldcrest and about 16 Redwings. 2 Roe Deer were chased off this morning by a foal grazing the meadow for us.

Butterflies included Red Admiral 2, Speckled Wood 2, Small Copper 1, Comma 6, Small White 1 and Silver Y Moth 3. (Chris Parkin)
