Frampton Marsh

Had a two hour visit this afternoon. Saw a Grass Snake in the Vole pools, but everything else was very quiet until a Peregrine dropped in on the 500+ strong Black-tailed Godwit flock sending them all skywards and enabling one to be picked out with ease, they never settled after that and continued making a racket all the time I was there. A peregrine visited later but carried on over Eastwards – perhaps it wasn’t hungry!

Only other species of note were two Black Terns dipping in to the freshwater scrapes and a Spotted Redshank, again on the scrape.

Everything seems to be at a great distance and with the heat haze made photography for anything other than record shots very difficult.
