In keeping with my motto to try something new everyday, I tried a new footpath at Croston Marsh tonight. I now know why it's the path less travelled - it became inaccessible due to mega nettles. Hmmm so we had to backtrack. However sightings included 3 grey partridges, larks, whitethroat, curlew, swift, heron, kestrel, pheasants, rabbit, hare and a song thrush smashing a snail.

His site is well worth a visit
