Marsworth tonight

Not so many Corn Buntings tonight. Approx 16.00 one group of 17 and another of similar size came in, but I didn't see them go down to roost. They seemed to fly towards the Water Treatment Works. Later, another small group (a dozen or so) came straight into the reedbed from across the reservoir.

At 16.25 the Bittern flew up from the triangle of reeds next to the path (the triangle next to the open water formed by the first cut and one behind it) and dropped down into the reeds behind. A great close view, but brief as ever. Good to see there is one there ahead of tomorrow's roost watch (Keith Evans).

Elsewhere, a single GOOSANDER was seen on Wilstone (Dave Bilcock)
