BOC - SALTMARSH with Colin (the yellow browed warbler master) gittens

Colin couldn't wave his magic warbler wand today, nevermind birds we did see were:
Pheasant 4 (m 1, f 3), Sparrowhawk 2, Buzzard 2, Kestrel 1, Reed Bunting, ChiffChaff, Long Tailed, Blue, Great, Coal Tits, Cetti's Warbler (everywhere), 1 possible Goshawk only got quick flight shot as it flew low behind trees. Still quite a few Swallows passing over, flocks of Skylark, Mpipits, Linnet and Goldfinches, Wheatear 4, Stonechat.
