Carlton Marsh

Our first moth session of the year produced just one moth as the temperature dropped, Pale Brindled Beauty, but it was new to the list. 

12 Tufted Ducks were diving on the scrape as a Water Rail flew from one reed bed to another. A Cetti's Warbler and a male Tawny Owl sang and a Pipistrelle Bat was flying at dusk (D.M. Smith/CG).
