Brandon Marsh

Willow Warbler

With the prospect of an excellent day ahead, I decided to visit Brandon Marsh in the hope of year ticking some spring migrants. I arrived quite early at 0600 and was met with a misty outlook which also enabled a misty sunrise HERE . I was rewarded with year ticks in the form of Sedge Warbler; Cuckoo; Common Tern; Reed Warbler; Little Ringed Plover and Whitethroat. A list of sightings can be found at the end of this post.
