February 11th 2011

Dave and I were treated to prolonged views of a Water Rail that came out of the channel at Brandon Marsh – climbed on to reedy platform and enjoyed the afternoon sunshine preening. Another surprise was a day flying Noctule Bat showing over goose pool and the only other birds of note were Nuthatch and 4 Snipe including 2 in front of hide.

Called in on Lawford Heath but most birds were preparing for the roost but managed to locate 3 Corn Bunting before dusk.
Bob e-mailed to say apart from 8 Raven over mid-day there was not much at the pond but did have a moth fest with 20 counted from four species including Dotted Border and Spring Usher
