Cholsey Marsh

Sunshine, 28º, light NE.

Had my grandson today so an early visit to Cholsey Marsh was in order and rewarded with a brilliant sunrise this morning.

The marsh is a lot quieter now but a Grasshopper Warbler heard along with Willow Warbler, also Sedge Warbler, Chiffchaff and a few brief snatches of Reed Warbler, Blackcap and Whitethroat heard and around a dozen Reed Bunting still in song, a few juvenile Sedge Warblers seen.

A Kingfisher flew down river also 8 adult Black-headed Gulls. 20 to 30 Swallows over the marsh and river included a fair few juveniles.

Green and Great-spotted Woodpeckers in the garden along with the other regulars.

A Scarlet Tiger in Wantage at the week end.
