Wilthorpe Marsh 19/5/17.
Early evening. Quiet but enjoyable with a Hobby showing well going towards cawthorne. Also LRP flew into small muddy area which I assume is just a feeding area. They have bred in the adjacent industrial est. in the past and probably doing so again. Broods seen were 2 very recently hatched Lapwings, 6 Mallards, Greylag 7, a 4 and a 3.
