Friday 16th August
Lovely day here today, what a difference from yesterday! We were out putting up the electric fence in the floods in front of the hides. While we were working we spooked a number of birds, including lapwing, a pair of mute swans with 3 large cygnets, three snipe, and two birders from the hide. In the woods I could hear willow warblers calling and sedge warblers. In the silage fields that were cut recently there are huge flocks of starlings. Ian's back 'on duty' tomorrow so it will be back to normal then!
