An afternoon visit began at the Sanctuary Hide where a singing male Sedge Warbler, three singing male Reed Warbler and a singing male Reed Bunting were all observed.
From Rotunda hide a pair of Canada Goose were observed with two recently hatched young.
From the pudding stone area adjacent the plantation I photographed three species of Damselfly and an assortment of insects.
Below the Teal Hide a pair of Little Grebe were busily nest building among the reeds while on the far bank a Grey Heron cautiously fished.
At Lynsters Hide six Egyptian Geese and a single Eurasian Oystercatcher fed among the pasture while at the Long Hedge a very active Hairy Dragonfly rested briefly.
