Patchwatch

A warm and clear morning with light winds.  Firstly to Walthamstow Marshes where in the front paddocks a single Fieldfare and Grey Wagtail were present.  Walking up past the horse paddocks, six Meadow Pipit, three Pied Wagtails were seen, and two Reed Bunting.  Chiffchaff were everywhere with around fifteen in song as well as around eight Blackcap.  Two Shelduck flew over.

At Waterworks NR, the Cetti's Warbler was in song, as were a couple of Blackcap.  Eleven Teal and three Tufted Duck were on the various waterbodies and a Little Egret flew over.

Small White and Small Tortoiseshell were the only butterflies on the wing.
