So today, myself and Jamie Partridge concentrated on the Marshes with a brief excursion up to Springfield Park and it produced a decent mix of stuff without anything really outstanding. My first autumn Hobby was seen spooking the 200+ Common Swift that are still in situ around the waterworks. By the paddocks, there were at least two Lesser Whitethroat associating with four Common Whitethroat and a Reed Warbler.
A minimum of three Willow Warbler were seen in the scrub with a few Blackcap and Chiffchaff.
Wandering up and onto Springfield failed to produce anything significant, but on the way back into the Marshes, a young Common Buzzard flew low over the paddocks predictably being mobbed by Gulls. A Yellow Wagtail called as it flew over the river.
