Last days of Autumn
It's the return of Lewis and Carter joined by Geoff Laptop and Tony Hulls but alas no Emu.
Over the last few days we have had between 8-11 common snipe.Also 2 regular Little Egrets although
flighty have been giving good views at rest and hunting for the small number of fish due to low water levels.The autumnal colours are glorious in the sunshine,but best at the moment is the trio of
confiding Green sandpipers.Passerines of note are a few Redwing,goldcrests have been obliging
and Common Teal numbers increasing see next blog for more details. the above view from the sluice
shows the water levels,well thats all for now.
Autumn crest takes gold in the bird olympics.
