Rather unpredictable morning!
Shoveler - female/imm escaped from the top shelf of a mist net!!!!! [rare here]. This is the third duck species to escape from the top shelf of this particular mist net this year (Tufted & Mallard being the other two!)
A group of four Foxes seen at 08.00 roaming on the Reserve plateau area. Most likely the same family, including three cubs, seen close to the Hut some while ago.
Vis mig Middleton/Heysham
Tree Pipit - 2 SE & the above grounded bird
Swallow - 25 SE
House Martin - 5 SE
