Little and Large

The Ahhh factor!

The Squacco Heron was still showing well from the ramp but just that little tbit to distant for really good pics. While watching the Squacco the Great White Egret flew over then landed on Denge Marsh near a Little Egret showing the huge size difference. Also from the ramp the Bittern gave a fly by and was booming, a family party of Bearded Tits were pinging and flitting in the reeds along with Sedge, Reed and Cetti's Warblers, 3 plus Hobbys entertained with their aerobatics and a couple of Marsh Harriers cruised the reed beds.The Trre Sparrows have occupied the triangular box at Boulderwall Farm and Bee's appear to have ousted the Kestrels from there usual site there.  On the ARC Pit the Goosander was roosting on the islands from the Screen Hide also the 2 Green Sandpipers still there. A count of Pochard on the pit was 346. At Cockles Bridge a Corn Bunting was singing and 2 Yellow Wagtails were in the horse paddock.
