Brandon Marsh

Tuesday 21st April 2009

Again it was a question of grabbing a bit of Birding as and when and I had a couple of hours at Brandon Marsh in the morning. It was a lovely day to be out, and bird song filled the air with Cetti's, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat(145), Willow warbler, Sedge and Reed warbler (146) all demanding attention at Newlands. In the New Hare covert Alban Wincott found a male Brambling in the canopy, unfortunately it chose to stay high up but its splendid breeding plummage could still be appreciated. On East Marsh there was a single Common Tern, while waders were represented by Oystercatcher, Ringed plover, Snipe and Redshank.


  1. Thought we'd have seen you over at Cosso Bob? Even Steve Webb came for the Pecs.

  2. Having a bit of a Purple patch over your way John, good to see. Managed to see the one remaining Pec on Saturday.
