Carlton Marsh

3 Teal, 2 juvenile Grey Herons and 2 Lapwings were on the wader scrape. Elsewhere a Goldcrest sang in the car park and 3 juvenile Robins were feeding nearby. A Cuckoo sang from the marsh.

Insects on show today were the odd Common Blue Damsel and the more common Blue-tailed with a single of the variant rufescens. 

Also 3 Burnet Companion moths, a Blood-vein and a Latticed Heath moth. Butterflies were represented by a Common Blue, 6 Ringlets and a Meadow Brown (K. Bannister/CG}.
