Autumn starts at St Mary’s

Home Autumn starts at St Mary’s

On the 23rd September 2017….

An early morning start at St Mary’s is always very rewarding, especially in the autumn.  Highlights today included a smart Lesser Whitethroat and a group of 10-13 Ruff, which is a species I can’t remember ever recording myself at this site.  I am however recording Ruff more and more in the County.  

There were only a few Curlews around today with less than ten out and about.

Five Grey Herons were enjoying the sunshine; with two more at Old Hartley.

I took some time out to relax on the nearby rocks nearby and enjoy the warm sunshine.

I”m sure it will not be long before Little Egrets join the Grey Herons at St Mary’s as regulars.
