As I walked around the site I also saw 2 of the 3 Mallard ducklings from Wednesday, 5 Swallows, including one with quite a lot of white in the feathers, 14 Tufted Ducks, 11 Coots, 3 Moorhens, 1 Grey Wagtail, 1 Great-crested Grebe and 4 Linnets which were feeding on dandelions by the top reservoir. A gorgeous male Siskin was singing around the Larch trees as well. I've recorded them singing here before, but haven't yet managed to record any other evidence of breeding.
When I arrived on site this morning the temperature gauge was showing 2 degrees. It had risen to 5 degrees by 8am, but that still didn't stop the snow shower that blew in as I was standing on the top reservoir!
Snow flurries in May - nice!
