Vange Marsh

On the reserve today were single Comma and Red Admiral butterflies near the wood yard entrance. Out on the marsh a pair of Great Crested Grebes were displaying while a third adult looked a little left out!

Five Avocet and two Curlew were seen along with 3 Mute Swan, 21 Wigeon, 16 Shoveler, 5 Pochard a drake Tufted Duck and a pair of Little Grebe.

A Grey Wagtail flew over calling and two Cetti’s Warbler were singing. Two Green Sandpiper were in the saline lagoon.
