    October 15th

    A beautiful crisp classic October day at LM. As expected the Beardies were performing well. Around 20 noted along the Causeway with a male feeding on the reed heads within 6 feet of the track. Of note at one point there were 6 birds, 2 males and 4 females/juvs on the grit trays. All six birds were unringed.

    A taste of Autumn with returning Siskins and Goldcrests on the track to Lower Hide along with 2 flyover Redpolls.

    6 Cetti’s Warblers in song around the reserve and 2 Chiffchaffs on the saltmarsh track. One briefly in full song.

    2 Red Admiral, 1 Migrant Hawker, 3 Common Darters noted.

    Earlier than my visit 3 Otters and Spoonbill noted at Lower Hide.

    An excellent day out in the diminishing days of sunshine!

    Cheers
    Steve
