A Marsh, but Water Nowhere to be Found

On Friday we went inland to a linear nature reserve, but it was very overcast, so the expected butterflies failed to materialise.  However, we had a pair of displaying and presumably courting Red Kites overhead before we left the car park.  In another nature reserve we saw a wary Little Owl, a Great Spotted Woodpecker and a few Yellowhammers.  On the return journey a busy father Marsh Tit stopped his searching for food for his brood, and sang to us at point-blank range instead.  It was better than the poor weather had promised it to be.
