Carlton Marsh

This afternoon's walk with Dave Standish was relatively quiet. Buzzard, Kestrel, Great Spot Woodpecker, 76 Stock Doves in off a stubble field,  Coal Tit,10 Herring Gulls (wader scrape), 6 Tufted Ducks, 2 Shovelers and cracking views of a Water rail under the feeder.

A belated report of a Barn Owl from a member of the public last week. Like everywhere else the valley is well flooded to very similar levels seen in February 2020.
