Carlton Marsh

A pair of Shoveler returned to the Whin Pool, but all the other water is still frozen. A female Great Spotted Woodpecker was in the car park with 1 Siskin and about 30 Redwings. 

A Water Rail called from the marsh and a Cetti's Warbler sang from the scrape. 

A nearby pasture provided 1 Red-legged Partridge, 6 Fieldfares and 1 Meadow Pipit. Meanwhile the Mute Swan and the Whooper Swan were feeding in the fields (separately). (L & A. Corral/CG)

The BMBC Rangers were hard at work today cutting back some of the high overhanging branches that we can't reach on the embankment. As usual they did an excellent job. This will allow more light in for wild flowers.
