Adel Dam

As always Adel Dam was fairly quiet despite the crowds in Golden Acre - from a selfish point of view it's lovely but on the other hand it's a shame people seem to overlook it - they don't know what they are missing!

At the first hide we watched Coal, Great, Blue and Long Tailed Tits, a few Mallards, a Chaffinch and a squirrel.

When we went back outside my husband spotted something moving in the undergrowth - a Bank Vole, it ran about on and off some logs for quite a while - too quick for a photo unfortunately. As far I as can remember it's the first time i've seen one.

The little stream was flowing quite fast for a change though not quite the waterfall my daughter described it as!

Walking around we saw plenty of fungus - it's quite a haven for it here - we never fail to spot some every time we visit.

From the main hide the only thing of interest we saw was a pair of Teal in the distance and a couple of Moorhens.

Not the most bird filled afternoon but we all enjoyed it and that's the main thing!
