Carlton Marsh

This evening's Bittern watch produced c50 Fieldfares, 10 Redwings, 8 Yellow Buntings, Redpoll, Kingfisher, Cetti's Warbler, singing Dabchick, calling Water Rails and male and female Tawny Owls. 

The Bittern came flying in at tree height at 18.29hrs to its favourite reed bed and quickly climbed the reeds. It was visible until it got dark (DM Smith/D. Standish/CG). 

Dearne Valley Park Hoyle Mill
2 Buzzards, Treecreeper, 2 Jays and 2 Mute Swans. Butterflies included 2 Peacock, 1 S. Tortoiseshell and 2 Comma. Not forgetting loads of Frogspawn (Chris Parkin).

A Siskin flew NW over my Cudworth garden this afternoon.
