Because of the foul forecast we switched to Tophill Low. The best birds were the Water Rails; one in North Marsh and two on South Marsh West. The latter performed a strange dance round a reed, and then one indulged in an unusual swaying head movement. 2 Jays flew over the River Hull into D Woods in the morning, but were not relocated. There were 2 drake and a female red-Crested Pochard on D Reservoir for both sessions. There was a possible Yellow-Browed Warbler calling near Watton nature Reserve, but when we stopped to listen it failed to call again - the one which got away!

Possibly lepiota hystrix?
Caterpillar of White Ermine?
