Guardarmar – Steve Saunders

I thought you might be interested to know that yesterday I heard a Short-toed Treecreeper in the Eucalyptus trees along the track to the jetty. It was still there when we walked back but just refused to be seen!

Also, in the low scrub further up, we twice glimpsed a Dartford Warbler dashing into cover. A Common Sandpiper was along the river edge, a Zitting Cisticola briefly danced up over the agricultural land and a Kingfisher darted between the clumps of Reed. A very pleasant morning even if the dredging at the mouth of the river meant no gulls, waders or terns in that area.

I would loved to have found the Penduline Tits and Little Bittern but no luck on this occasion.
