Wet Wednesday

A very wet early morning walk around Branton Ponds was enlivened by a sudden influx of Willow Warblers as well as 50+ Sand Martins and a number of Swallows hawking over the water.Our attention was drawn to a dead fish lying by the edge of the pond ,this turned out to be a Perch which measured between 12ins and 14ins in length.
The rest of the morning was spent doing a bird survey at Kimmer Lough,we saw many Snipe,Meadow Pipits,Skylarks and 2 Woodcock,however the most surprising sighting was a very smart looking and early female Pied Flycatcher.
