Bell Marsh, Red River Valley, Cornwall, Britain.

A scrub Bash with the Red River Rescuers.
Trip to Uk, Day Twenty Eight.
 
Fitted out by Lynn, Steve and the rest of the organizers with Wellies, Hi-Vis Vest and safty Glasses I really enoyed a few hours conservation work with the Red River Rescuers Group at Bell Lake Marsh. A part of the Red River Valley the group has looked after and improved for the local Wildlife. 


This was the first meeting of the group since the start of Covid, so Steve and the rest of the regulars were pleased to see so many people turn up and work hard to fight back against the Gorse and Willows that have had the run of the place for a while.

All pictures by Adam Poledníček, Thanks for letting me use them.
During the time there I did see a few bits including good numbers of Siskin (Lúgano / Carduelis spinus), Great (Carbonera Común / Parus major), Blue (Herrerillo Común / Parus caeruleus) and Long-tailed Tit (Mito / Aegithalos caudatus), Redwing (Zorzal Alirrojo / Turdus illacus), Bullfinch (Camachuelo Común / Pyrrhula pyrrhula), Dunnock (Acentor Común / Prunella modularis), Wren (Chochin / Troglodytes troglodytes), Robin (Petirrojo Europeo / Erithacus rubecula) and as I was walking out along the track a flock of mixed Tits which included several Common Chiffchaffs (Mosquitero Común / Phylloscopus collybita), a couple of Goldcrest (Reyezuelo Sencillo / Regulus regulus) and most exciting of all a calling Yellow-browed Warbler (Mosquitero Bilistado / Phylloscopus inornatus).
