Lots of Little Egrets graced the scrapes: fascinating to see them by the side of Carrion Crows, showing how teensy they are! Plenty of newly-fledged Swallows on the wires - what excellent little birds: how we miss them during the Winter!
A couple of Marsh Harriers hawked over the reedbeds: the male had an incredible white rump patch..
On the walk round to Stubb's Mill we came across a newly-emerged Elephant Hawk Moth: I have to admit, this was a first for me! Again: what a gorgeous creature...
No Cranes at the Watchpoint, but we met a charming couple from Chesterfield on a walking holiday: the husband had jammed in on some excellent rarities in the past, but hadn't gone to see the Crag Martin!
