Walthamstow Marshes

A warm morning with plenty of birdsong and much promise with a glut of Ring Ouzels moving through southern counties. Surely we could bag one ourselves.  Predictably it wasn't to be but there were plenty of odds and ends.

A Peregrine flew south over, and a Sand Martin was seen in its now resident location downriver. A single Meadow Pipit flew round the paddocks and at least three male Reed Bunting were located around the Marsh.  A lone Lapwing flew low over north marsh, where a Willow Warbler sang from the east side.  A Cetti's Warbler called from around the railway underpass.  A Swallow then flew through on the northside, and a single House Martin was seen flying north high over the railway bridge.

Two Shelduck dabbled along the relief channel.
