Not nearly as far away as I thought, Boyton Marshes RSPB proved to be a decent little reserve and excellent views of 3 Glossy Ibis were forthcoming. During the quieter moments you could hear the birds feeding on the flash, lovely stuff. The ringed individual originates from Donana, apparently.
Stonking views of a Water Rail on drugs, dashing about on a concrete track. Beardies and Cettis were typically heard but not seen, and I witnessed a stand off between a Heron and an Egret. A Wall Brown was my second of the year. The grazing meadows here look great for Pipits and Wagtails.
Went to Shingle Street for a bush-bash, nothing doing but clearly bags of potential here.
Had the new Moth trap out over the weekend. Difficult to give a complete list as I am still unsure about some species, but these I am confident of:
Blair's Shoulder Knot
Large Ranunculus (I think, picture attached)
Large Yellow Underiwng
Brown Spot Pinion
Of note in my village, a Wheatear flushed on route to the pub, and a Comma through the front garden in glorious weather.
