No 50 for the cress beds

Friday 10 February 2017

Pair of Canada Geese flew over but apart from that all remains the same with Water Rail, Green Sandpiper and Little Egret still around.

Not much change

Sunday 5 February 2017

Most of the regulars still on the cress beds with Green Sandpiper, Water Rail and somewhere between 1 and 3 Little Egrets. Only real changes  - winter thrushes seem to have departed and a couple of Song Thrushes in full song.

Don't get too excited just a Blackcap of the male variety.

Two new for the year

Tuesday 10 January 2017

Most of the usual culprits with Green Sandpiper, Water Rail and Little Egret but enlivened by Green Woodpecker and Treecreeper to add to the years list.

Another one caught up for 2017

Tuesday 3 January 2017

The Water Rail returned to its usual location under the Privet bush and gave me a ten minute view. Green sandpiper and Little Egret still on show.

Bit better

Monday 2 January 2016

Raven flying up and down and up the Watercress beds kronking on its journey and a tiny duck with mallards proved to be a female Teal. Both unusual birds for my Ewelme list. Little Egret (2) and Green Sandpiper more usual fare.

Slow start to the year

Sunday 1 January 2017

Managed an hour or so before the rain got going but the visibility not too good even without the rain. Highlights of Ewelme Cress Beds were the Little Egret and Green sandpiper and of the Preston Crowmarsh Sewage works  3 Chiffchaffs, a Goldcrest and "loads" of Pied Wagtails feeding on the beds.
