WH Dusk

I was at West Hartford between 9 and 10 last night as the light was fading.
Pheasants were caling most of the time and I heard at least five.
3 Shellduck were flying around the back fields before landing on the water. A single Redshank was the only wader I could pick out.
As I scanned for waders I noticed one in the north east corner of the main pool. I couldn't get a good view as it was in the shadow of the trees so after wading through the bog between the two pools and flushing a Reed Bunting and three Moorhens, I managed to get a good view of, another Redshank!
Also three Curlew circled the marsh calling. I'll go back another night this week.
