Several Reed warblers were seen and several calling Reed Buntings too. Hearing a Cuckoo calling almost constantly we walked over to the North wall and 2 Cuckoo's flew west, one bird was still calling and it also flew west, so 3 Cuckoo's seen in all.
On Tuesday 22nd June, we walked straight over tp the North Marsh, a Cuckoo flew west and later flew east. Several Sedge warblers were seen and 2 Barn Owls flying over distant fields, 1 flew over towards us and then settled in a bush. It proved to be a young bird, recently fledged as it still showed white down on its plumage. A Magpie settled on the bush and the Barn Owl looked rather quizzically at it.
