Raily Close Views in the Gloom

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!
