July 7th

I did the circuit this morning starting from Stodmarsh,7am-10am, and as i got near the old boathouse i saw a Stoat dragging something along the track, it saw me and shot into the vegitation allowing me to see it was a squab and still warm so i hid in the bushes and it came back and dragged it off, a very good start to the morning. Bird's seen on my way round were 1 Little Egret, 2 Grey Heron, 3 Marsh Harrier ( 1 juvenile ), 2 juvenile and 1 adult Great tit, 6 Linnet, 3 Reed Bunting, 2 Bearded tit, 1 Kestrel, 1 male Sparrowhawk and approx 30 Goldfinch on the thistles near marsh hide. At the hide were 3 Lapwing chicks and 2 adults. At Harrisons the Coot that was nesting has 2 chick's that I could see and another Coot was building another nest. A few Skylark's and Reed Warbler's were seen and 5 Jay's. Butterfly's seen were Speckled Wood, Large and Small White, Comma, Red Admiral, Peacock, Gate Keeper and Meadow Brown
