On the Marsh.

Four Mistle Thrush and a Green Woodpecker were the only notable birds spotted during a trip to Carswell Marsh. Later a visit to Buscot Lock to check on the Tree Sparrow Feeders and a walk along the Thames was pretty lifeless with a strong wind blowing keeping things quiet, the only birds seen were Great Spotted Woodpecker, Moorhen, about fifty Mallard and the usual contingent of Corvids. Surprisingly a Migrant Hawker and smaller unidentified blue dragonfly were flying in the more sheltered reaches of the river.
