A couple hours round Little Woolden Moss late morning was very good with maximum of 4 Hobbies feeding on airborne insects,at least 2 on show most of the time. Also 2 Marsh Harriers together at one stage and really nice to see 2 juvenile Yellow Wagtails with their parents. Good numbers of Swifts feeding over the oil seed rape crop together with a few Swallows and Sand Martins and 3 House Martins.

Just realised that Jack Snipe's a winter visitor so wouldn't be that - maybe it was a "normal" Snipe just not behaving normally.

Evening visit (Sunday 16th) to the eastern end of Little Woolden Moss LWTNR until the rain settled in properly to see if that made a difference to what's about but it only meant I saw less - did however hear a Water Rail doing a lot of calling at the east end of the Eastern Pools.

But I may have flushed a Jack Snipe - can't be sure because the light was fading and I've no experience of differentiating between Jack & "normal" Snipes - my immediate thought was "Snipe" but that was straight away followed by "but it's not making any noise, it's staying low and it's landed not that much further away" - is that "normal" Snipe behaviour if it's just before roosting or possibly near a nest?

I had a walk on Little Woolden Moss yesterday evening, it was superb in the warm sunshine. Delighted to hear and then see a Cuckoo, being chased from bush to bush by Meadow Pipits. Also 2 Hobby and a Marsh Harrier at the western end and a singing Corn Bunting in the field north of the reserve. Heard a Grasshopper Warbler over there too
