The Stour Valley list for 2018 stands at 156(+1) species so far.
I did the circuit again this morning and there were 3 Green sandpiper, 1 Snipe, 1 Water rail and 1 Little egret at Feast hide. At Harrisons were 3 Green sandpiper and 3 Little egret. Marsh hide had a juvenile Marsh harrier but nothing else. Good news at Stodmarsh where 5 Juvenile Marsh harriers were honing there flying skills but not getting it quite right when perching on branches. Other birds seen were 3 Green woodpecker, 8 Swallow, 1 Skylark, 10 juvenile Reed bunting, 3 adult Marsh harrier and a few Sedge and Reed warbler.
