Elmley, Mid March 2023
Trip with U3A group to Elmley. The weather was unsettled, it was raining most of the time, so the light was poor – really too poor for the micro 4/3’s camera.
After several drives on the entrance track, we decamped for tea and cake in the café. By the time we returned to the car park the weather had cleared up for the drive back.
The Long-eared and little owls were not to be seen but one SEO appeared in the roosting area just as we were leaving.
Species seen included Buzzard, Marsh harrier, Curlew, Lapwing, Redshank, Oystercatcher, Skylark, Grey heron, Pheasant, Red-legged partridge, Coot, Moorhen, Mallards, Widgeon and Mute swans.
