Waterworks

Slim pickings today having arrived shortly after the rain had stopped.  Spent almost three hours on-site best of which were two Spotted Flycatcher that were making their way through the reserve.  A Common Whitethroat put in a brief appearance while the supporting cast included four Siskin, eight Meadow Pipit, two Willow Warbler, two Goldcrest, Kingfisher, Sparrowhawk, and a Cetti's Warbler.

Local LV staff were carrying out a bat survey and rather helpfully flushed all the Teal which numbered at least 21 and a single Shoveler.

Both Common Darter and Migrant Hawker were on the wing.
