On the walk to the pool my first Gropper of the year was singing in the reedbed. Then a Cuckoo started calling and showed nicely in the top of a tree.
Onto the pools and the Blue Winged Teal was showing distantly on the back end of the main pool. Scope views were ok so I was pleased to get an identifiable record shot.
Today there was a movement of Red kites over Carlton Marsh, I was working very close to there but could only pick up one as I glanced into the sky during working.
Back on patch tonight the Tawny Owl was back in its day roost. Bee Orchids are hard to find, usually 300 but only 3 this year.
Birdwise, Hobby, Fulmar, 3 Sandwich Tern and Grey Partridge was it really.
