A wander around the desert and southern edge of the trapping area found as expected little of note, except a brazen Fox sunning itself, probably lost its way trying to find the hay fields.  
At the observatory DW came back with Cetti's Warbler a really scruffy adult male. 
 A lazy afternoon spent sky watching from Plodland started with a Honey Buzzard which flew high west over the ranges, up to 3 Common Buzzards at a time were over the fields, also up to 5 Hobby's, 3 Marsh Harriers, a Peregrine and several each of Little Egret and Grey Heron to and from the Heronry.
 A wander round the Hay fields to Dengemarsh, found 4 Avocet, 9 Black-tailed Godwits, a Redshank, a Ringed Plover, a Garganey and 6 Little Egrets on Hay Field 3, as I was leaving 8 Lapwings dropped in.
 By Dengemarsh Hide a Sedge Warbler was posing and a Cetti's Warbler was shouting out its song, a Hobby was over the reed bed as was 2 Marsh Harriers and Bittern was booming half heartedly.
