Canton Common Ditch

The ditches alongside Leckwith Road have been “home” to Moorhens for several years! They have even bred there too. In addition it is a site where Reed Warblers briefly stop off on Spring passage. This falls inside my BBS site. During winter two or three Moorhens often venture onto the grass verges of Leckwith Rd as well! Glad to note that you’ve seen them there today!

  1. Thanks Steve. I have seen ones and twos there over the years, but four is a record for me. The ditch does seem more overgrown than it was a few years ago, but that might just be my impression. It’s good that they’re still there, despite all the recent developments.
