A dank & wet Corton

Having just 45 minutes this morning before work, along at the entrance a female Blackcap was seen. The whole area was sodden wet and dank with grey skies that only brightened up at 8.40am just as I was leaving. There was further evidence of fly tipping, which is such a problem here with a double mattress recently dumped on the track (if this inconsiderate people take the time to dump it here they've walked 30 yards down the track to why can't they dispose of it properly at the Haddenham road refuse dump??) By the copse along the old rail track by the last southern sycamore, a calling Pied Flycatcher flew out and round the corner to the bare "HBuzzard" tree.
Checking Corton old sewage works, I was running out of time but saw a female Wheatear fly up to the fence and 6 Sky Lark fly out the stubble field north of the works. In the field just west of here, 3 Robins seen and 11 Siskin flew west.
Opposite Corton ex-MOD track, a heron stood sentinel in the field.
In the evening, a tractor was spraying the stubble fields disturbing several 4 Sky larks, & the female Wheatear was seen again on the sewage works and 6 turnstones on the groynes by the sea. Finally, a female Reed Bunting flew up from the track in the grass field and flew to the northern most hedge.
