African Skimmer Cameroon Apr 2018

05 January, 2013

In dull drizzly grey morning I took myself over to Marsh Farm, all seemed very quiet with no wildfowl on the pools whatsoever, but with 300 Black-headed Gull in the flooded field, along with 3 Grey Heron. 1 Cetti's Warbler calling from the reeds, also 2 Water Rail in the area and 2 Snipe flushed from the fields. A flock of 28 Redwing took flight from the line of tree's as a Peregrine swooped into view. Around the Farm 2 Bullfinch, 4 Chiffchaff, 5 Goldcrest 1 Redpoll and 1 Buzzard.
