This visit was mid May, the weather is still dull and chilly but spring is in full force despite this!
The ponds were teeming with life
There wasn't a lot of birds on the water but we saw Little Grebe, Herons, Canada Geese, Swans, Mallards, Tufted Ducks and Common Terns. The Sand Martin home was well used!
I spotted Blackcaps in the trees by the duck marsh hide and along the willow walk were Bullfinch, Robins, Dunnocks, Blue Tits, a Jay and Wrens
Some other views from the day. We always end up spending a few hours here, it's a great place to explore!
