On our early morning walk Linda and I came across a new bird for the Heath: a beautiful Grey Wagtail! It was feeding happily by the sluice at Pedham, before flying downstream towards the irrigation reservoir. Other birds seen or heard included Green and Great Spotted Woodpeckers, Nuthatch and Song Thrush.
On an entirely unrelated note: what's up with 'Fat Birder'? I've noticed Penny has had issues with the counter on her blog in the past: there doesn't seem to be any relationship between the number of hits my site gets and the ranking number. Despite 300 - 400 daily hits, the ranking swings from 94 to 78... most strange!
