Lots of acivity in and around the reed beds. Reed Buntings, Reed , Sedge and Grasshopper warblers all feeding in the open.
Ponteland hide has some nice smelly mud but few waders at the moment. Worth a regular check?
Marsh Harriers off the nest for the whole morning? A worrying development, no food passes. The male caught one prey item but did't pass it to the female. Have they been disturbed at the nest?
