Quiet but dry

A morning at Uskmouth and and quick stop at Saltmarsh Lane proved to be a pretty quiet affair. A few migrants were passing over (most going west) but nothing to rival yesterday. The highlights were probably 35 Siskin, 2 Tree Pipits and 10 Yellow Wags, if you think that was dull there was even less in the scrub, reeds and hedgerows.

Found this pic of Wales Atlantis to post (I meant to stick it up a couple of days ago), it gives you some idea as to why I got saturated whilst taking the dog down the canal on Friday evening. Did get a Kingfisher and a possible Otter kill though (an unidentified dead mammal, turned inside out, floating mid-stream).
