I thought the highlight this afternoon would be three little egrets in front of the sailing club until... a hobby drifted over the visitor centre. The greylags have all gone and not many coots were in evidence. In fact most of the lake was pretty empty.

Got out yesterday for the first time in a quite a while. Kingfisher at the lower weir & again near the sailing club. Buzzard in the trees near the underpass then a pair of Green Woodpecker either side of the river at Bordesley. Egret passed the five tunnels. On the way back to Ipsley Pool saw plenty of Long Tailed Tits. Another Egret just above the bridge near Ipsley.
