Walthamstow Reservoirs

A cooler and fresher day compared to the previous three days of warm sunshine.  The clouds were heavy and grey and the threat of showers wasn't too far away.

A Cetti's Warbler sang near to the bridge near to the gatehouse and over 200 Common Swift were forced down because of the low cloud base, scudding around No.4.

The heavens then opened, and I got an old fashioned soaking.

From the island on No.5, three Kingfisher were seen while two Grey Wagtail flew over.  A Lesser Whitethroat rattled from the causeway between No.1 and East Warwick.

At least one maybe two Common Sandpiper remained on East Warwick where a single Ring-Necked Parakeet flew over.

A family of Little Grebe were on No.3 with newly fledged young where a Great Spotted Woodpecker flew over.  A juvenile Green Woodpecker fed along the causeway between No.3 and No.5.

Sedge Warbler, Reed Warbler, and Blackcap were still in song.
