Marazion Marsh - 21 August 2013

Day three on the Aquatic Warbler project and we got to the site a little earlier as the wind was swinging around to something like the right direction. We had heard reports of increased numbers of birds in the region but there wasn't much evidence of that at Marazion. We managed a total similar to Monday and will have to carry our hopes of catching an Aquatic over to Thursday.

 Adult Willow Warbler

Juvenile Sedge Warbler

Later in the morning, once it began to warm up, the butterflies and insects began to fly about and amongst the Common Blues, Small Coppers and Clouded Yellow was a Black-tailed Darter.
