One patch of grass had lots of cobwebs, strange they were only in the one spot though?
Lots of posing from the Swans
I caught this Redshank on the main lagoon
First ducklings of the year
There was plenty of colour with the Gorse.....
and loads of Daisies too
We saw a few butterflies - Speckled Wood, Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock
There were Warblers everywhere, including a showy Grasshopper Warbler..........which we missed but my husband did hear. We did see/hear Whitethroat, Reed and Sedge Warbler, Cetti's, Blackcap and Chiffchaff too.
We also saw Linnet in the gorse bushes, a couple of Common Tern on Astley lake. A couple of Mediterranean Gulls were on the main lake, which we saw thanks to some nice chaps with scopes! We heard Bittern booming a few times as we walked around and finally saw a Kestrel as we were on our way back to the car park.
A cuppa and a chat with the lovely folks at the visitor centre and we were off home.
