Sculthorpe Moor - 11th March 2023

 Low wind gave us a chance to monitor the birds in the beaver enclosure. We could hear Siskins in the Alders across the scrape but despite audio-lures these could not be enticed into our nets. In fact there were few birds in evidence in the enclosure although Marsh Tit was heard, there were few other passerines around and we only managed 6 birds.

Female Nuthatch.

Total: 3 (3)

Wren - 1
Robin - 0 (1)
Blue Tit - 0 (2)
Treecreeper - 1
Nuthatch - 1

As the birds were a bit thin on the ground, I took the opportunity to photograph some of the areas where the beavers have been at work.

Finally we checked to see if any Lapwing on the scrape carried darvics, but there were none.
