Out on the water Mallard numbers had increased to 79, a juvenile Moorhen was only the second recorded this year and was part of 9 counted today. Coot numbers were at 11, 1 Little Grebe was seen as were: 1 Grey Wagtail, 21 Tufted Ducks and 15 Mandarin Ducks. Also over the water were at least 5 Swallows, 10 House Martins and 1 Lesser Black-backed Gull.
In the surrounding woodland we managed to find, amongst the usual suspects, a Willow Tit, a singing Chiffchaff, a large flock of at least 50 Siskin and a Treecreeper.
The only butterfly species recorded today was a Red Admiral, found basking in the sunshine at the end of the walk.
