Migrantless March continues...
After yesterday, back to cooler overcast conditions. The large flock of godwits contained two Bar'wits and a Ruff, 21 Avocets were on the scrapes with a massive increase in gulls - it was pretty deafening. A single Chiffchaff was the only migrant. Others had the Firecrest in its usual place and apparently there were two more Ruff. Raptors as usual.
Under the corrugated sheets a single Bank Vole and two sluggish Slow Worms, one above whilst a visitor kindly held the sheet up for me. In the Meadow Hide ditch two, possibly three, Water Voles entertained visitors.
