Bird News: Ibsley Water - ringed plover 2 juvs., ruff 1 juv. and a greater flamingo which flew in at about 07:50 from the north-east, it has a blue ring on the right leg.
Ivy Lake - Cetti's warbler 1 singing.
General - a passage of swallows, house martins, sand martins, siskin and meadow pipit flying south or south west in small numbers through much of the morning.
The moth trap was quite busy although contained no surprises, 2 pink-barred sallow looked very fine though.
The volunteers were in again today and the willow clearance is going very well. Below are the before and after shots of the last couple of days work.
Unfortunately the shaddow conceals some of the effect.
