The walk round to Tower Hide revealed that the vast Rudd shoal (which includes several over the lb mark) was still in residence at the sluice attracting the attention of a Grey Heron.
Despite the low water level, there were still plenty of things to enjoy on Tower Scrape: two more Water Rails, lots of Ruff and a few Snipe: a Kingfisher put in a very brief appearance...
As we walked back to Reception, a group (oh alright: a 'kettle'!) of six Buzzards jousted above the woods. These are possibly the two local adults with four well-grown youngsters. The local Little Owl obliged as usual!
Back home, I glanced out of the window to see a Hobby and then, as it grew dusk, a Marsh Harrier being mobbed by corvids. What a great place to live!
