Foggy start at Strumpshaw!

Despite really poor visibility at 7.30, the morning brightened briefly, allowing views of Nuthatch (eating Yew berries by the dipping pool) at least five Water Rails, two Bitterns and some Marsh Tits. The only warblers (apart from Cettis) were a couple of yellow Willow Warblers. Lots of Bearded Tits  around the reserve and the usual waders at Tower Hide.

Still lots of Common & Ruddy Darters, and literally dozens of Migrant Hawkers, many still mating.
