Mid morning the rain cleared as I made my way across Walland Marsh. The Tickners Lane seed dump was alive with Finches and Buntings, the Common buzzard perched on its usual bush.
From the Triangle no sign of the Whitefronts but 2 Marsh Harrriers, further on the bushes opposite the feeders were teaming with Finches and House/Tree Sparrows and the Water Rail.
From Hawthorn Corner the 200+ Bewick swans could be seen but very distant.
At Scotney a female Scaup among the Tufties and Pochard was the highlight, though OL saw a male Hen Harrier earlier.
