Since my last post I've had a couple more Winter Moths and this morning there was 1 Light Brown Apple Moth in the trap. Made the usual visit to Dunge today. Saw the Great Grey Shrike again en route but in very gloomy/drizzly weather. At Dunge it was the same but more windy. Around the reserve we saw 4 Great White Egrets, 2 Little Egrets, 5 Goosander, 2 Smew, 2 Marsh Harriers and a Ruddy Duck. Down the Dengemarsh Road the Cattle Egrets (& the Cattle) were close to the fence, but the photographs would have benefitted from better light. On Walland marsh there were 100s of Fieldfares and Redwings. Finally, on my way home, I located the Bewicks Swans with the lone Whooper and at least 3 Tundra Bean Geese. Managed to miss the Caspian Gull yet again.
