Wednesday 10th september Ingrebourne Valley
Unusually warm, still, and quiet, pockets of Tit flocks with the usual warblers mixed in around the Valley, but nothing unusual. The scrape is looking very inviting at the moment and with this late summer sun any thing could turn up, I keep going over there because I don't want to miss anything, it's been a good year so far and could prove to be even better. I think we have all got blasé with the BTGs, but it's really amazing that in the first place they came there and so many, and they are still there. Because the water (fingers crossed) has gone down and the mud is showing everything is moving into the front scrape;... Snipe, Green Sandpiper, Godwits, although they have been there all along, Ducks, Gulls and geese. Another bird being very vocal at the moment is theWater Rail,. There are still daily Buzzard, Hobby, Sparrowhawk, Kestrel visits and hopefully another migrant burst.
