Warblers continue to be the stars this week. Loads of whitethroat have been singing along the willows from reception to singleton. Also listen out for blackcap, willow warblers, sedge warblers and reed warblers. On Saturday evening when setting up for the open day, grasshopper warblers were singing all over the reserve - 12 were counted during survey work last week so for grasshopper warblers try an evening visit to Blacktoft. Waders - there are now 6 spotted redshank (in summer plumage) using Ousefleet - they appeared to be surrounding a few black-tailed godwits this evening when I had a look. Also on the waders - a few greenshank have been seen occasionally, common sandpiper has been using xerox and a few whimbrel are passing by. A few of our avocets are now sitting on eggs - all on marshland. On Sunday an amazing count of over 100 yellow wagtails coming into roost to the right of singleton so this is another good reason for an evening visit to Blacktoft. Oh and remember the marsh harriers.
