A Song Thrush and a Water Rail

Song Thrush, Turdus philomelos
I went to Arundel WWT this morning when the sun was shining and left in the afternoon when showers became frequent. Sue said snow had landed briefly in Littlehampton during the afternoon. Highlights at Arundel were a Water Rail walking in front of the Scrape hide as soon as I walked in and a Song Thrush eating ivy berries outside the Ramsar hide. At the same hide a Little Grebe caught fish and a Grey Wagtail walked along the lakeside at the Sand Martin hide.
