Green Sandpipers

Posted in All

A Green Sandpiper that was seen from UU Hide on Monday was joined by another bird on Tuesday and both were viewable from Harrier Hide, also from here the Great Crested Grebes still have 2 young.

A female Pochard was on the Mere with one medium sized young.

Great Spotted Woodpeckers are showing well from the Janet Kear Hide, and adult and juvenile are being seen regularly. Also from here plenty of Tree Sparrows, Reed Buntings and Chaffinches coming to feed.

Still plenty of singing Reed and Sedge Warblers to see along with good numbers of Whitethroat around the reserve, also Chiffchaff singing in the wildfowl collection.

A good count of 8 Little Egrets from Harrier Hide today.

A good selection of Butterflies and Dragonflies can bee seen around the reserve as well as some stunning Damselflies such as Banded Demoiselle.

Also a Water Vole was seen in the reed bed walk area on the far side by the viewing screen.
