Headed out to Brandon Marsh this morning, hoping that something interesting might be lurking in the area. As usual, I left disappointed, especially as I couldn't locate a "visually impaired warbler" !!! The day was very warm and humid but also very dull. Teal Pool held three Redshanks and a Green Sandpiper, a Kingfisher briefly visited Carlton Pool, a Sparrowhawk with prey set up the Lapwings on East Marsh Pool, where further Redshanks and four Oystercatchers were located. Two Shelduck were almost hidden in the vegetation on the East Marsh islands that may have hidden small waders! Overall, 52 bird species so not bad!
