Friday 14th Oct Ingrebourne Valley

3 Snipe and a Green Sandpiper were on the scrape with plenty of teal.  In the small paddock was a large finch flock including Yellowhammers and Reed buntings.  There was also a number of Yellowhammers along the farmers field.  In the warm morning sun I spotted a couple of Adders and a Grass snake taking advantage of this last gleam before they disappear  for the winter.  I met JPL who at 7.30am had seen a Short-Eared Owl quartering the Ingrebourne hill then spiral upwards and out of sight.   I did have photo's from most of the morning but did the silly thing of deleting them before I had downloaded them.
