Waterworks NR

It felt like a good day for raptors as the sun shone and the day tried in vein to blow warm air through.  It did at times feel pleasant but birds were thing on the ground (and the air).

Best was the Siberian Chiffchaff that called and sang it's scrambled version of the colybita classic that we are all accustomed to and seen along the hedgeline left of the entrance.  It didn't hang around very long, but there were a couple of Chiffchaff in the vicinity.  There were a couple of singing Blackcap there.

On the reserve, a couple of singing Willow Warbler were present as was a Reed Warbler from deep in the reeds of Bed 19.

A pair of Shoveler were roosting on Bed 17, with a few Teal there.

A Sparrowhawk flew through, and five Sand Martin were flying around the hides.

A Peacock, Brimstone, Small White, and Small Tortoiseshell were on the wing today.
