Saturday 25th July 2009

We're into the quiet period as far as the birds are concerned.

Last weekend there was a large Terrapin in Lillypads and the two young Coot, seen the previous weekend were AWOL, a small fluffy Moorhen had taken their place, a little close to the Terrapin for comfort. Green Veined White butterfly along the woodland walk, exactly the same place as the one seen on the last guided walk.

Still a few singers about this weekend, with Blackcaps being particularly loud. Several Treecreepers heard (Spit, Navigation Channel and Dead Seat). Surprised a Muntjac as we came into Fingers at the Sedgewick Seat entrance. Visited EN's stand in the Rough and while there heard a short snatch of Lesser Whitethroat song. Eclipse male Gadwall on Lillypads.

A noticeable increase in Tern numbers the last couple of weeks with ~30 over the main lake this week.
