Well, the wildlife has been entertaining us these last few days from the siege of grey herons on townend to the peregrines and hobby stirring things up on our lagoons.
Starting with that siege that is taking place on townend (a group of grey herons is called a siege). There has been up to seven of them today on townend and they are often seen following and chasing each other around.
Also on Townend look out for those water rails especially on the right hand side. Waders have been great here also with greenshank, spotted redshank, green sandpiper and snipe being amongst just some present there today.
We also witnessed a stoat working along the bank in front of this hide. Stoats and weasels have been appearing all over the place during recent days with two running between my feet on the path to reception yesterday and another today in front of reception so keep watching along the paths and in front of the hides for these strange mammals.
The first red underwing of the autumn made an appearance today - It was seen on the door of xerox today!
Look out also for that charm of goldfinches (out front of reception) and the tribe of tree sparrows (by flood bank and feeders).
The bittern continues to be seen on singleton and those birds of prey (the peregrines and hobby) keep shifting those lapwing around!
