upton warren moors pool
again dipped out on the bittern but loads of water rails showing calling etc,a lot of time was spent looking at the sky and noted 16 meadow pipit,41 redwing,3 song thrush and 5 pied wags and 2 skylark,a very unusual moment was when a reed warbler belted out in sub-song in front of the water rail hide and according to one of the upton guru's,it is the latest record. 9 greylag geeese were in the canada flock.

you can tell it cant you, i'm struggerling about things to wright.
well a kingfisher landed on the perch in the little light.a cormorant was on the north moors and a green woodpecker on the causeway:
