Patchwatch

Dull and misty weather conditions this morning for a walk round Walthamstow Marshes that soon lifted into something a little more pleasant.



Bird song was in full chorus with Dunnock and Chiffchaff particularly vocal with a dozen of the latter seen/heard.  An increase in Blackcap numbers was also evident with some vociferous males accompanied by a couple of females with a total of six seen.  A single flyover Meadow Pipit, a female Reed Bunting, and a female Sparrowhawk were noted.  A Sand Martin flew low over the river footbridge by the Ice Centre.
