On bus to Baston Langtoft Pits as on twitter Ruddy Shelduck and Barnacle Goose. Had a great start on delivery at Crowland a Ringtail Hen Harrier drifting low over willow trees towards Peakirk Bank. Direction towards Deeping Lakes and hoping Etton-Maxey. Have seen one over Maxey Pits a couple yrs ago.

Another good session at Etton/Maxey Pits this morning. Warm sunshine and good company. We cut back willow growing along the southern ditch of South Meadow and treated stumps to hopefully prevent regrowth. Jean busy with the flora survey of the site.

Raining heavily. What fool goes birding?? I wonder. At Etton-Maxey 1 Snipe so far. Water levels higher than normal so will be lots of mud for October migration.
