You may have noticed a slowdown in the regularity of postings - that's because nothing much has changed.
Well, I say nothing. The big news this week was the arrival of a further drake tufted duck making the total 3m, 1 f. The greylags (30+ usually) continue to hang around Freeman's Pools quite a bit and a little grebe remains there, as well as the LR plover pair. Hares really seem to taken to the place too.
The coot pair at Bank Pool appear to have lost their chicks and I could only see 1 of the young with the parents on Darter Pool. Both common and lesser whitethroats seem to be busy feeding young along the cycle track and there are lots of fledged long-tailed tits around.
Plenty of blue-tailed damsels but no dragonflies as yet...
