Carlton marsh

A female Redstart near the bypass was new for the year (JP). 

Whitethroats have now increased to 11 singing males and Reed Warbler to 10 singing males. The male Kingfisher was busy making feeding trips to the nest site as Cetti's continued to sing. 6 Herring and 3 LBB Gulls were on the wader scrape with a pair of Teal and the Canada and Greylag families. 

The only movement seen this morning was a Swift over a nearby housing estate and 2 + 2 Swallows heading north. NO House Martins have been seen at this site yet despite lengthy watches!
