09.06.17. Birdlog

An evening walk around No.6 tank produced a male Marsh Harrier over No.4 tank but it was too distant and didn’t range close.

A couple of Reed Warbler were still singing from the ditches alongside Lordship Lane with several Reed Bunting feeding on the dusty lanes.

A few Avocet could be heard but unseen on No.3 tank.

We eventually ended up looking out across the open waters of No.6 tank. Common Shelduck were the most numerous duck species with Gadwall a close second and Tufted Duck in at third position. There were 9 Common Pochard which is a surprise considering they are not always present on this sludge tank. Six drake Common Teal preening in the shallows could be non-breeding birds?

Observer: Sparky, WSM.
