Happy to spot a Juvenile Cuckoo that was being followed around by a Jay. 3 Little Egrets, 4 Kingfishers, 6+ Common Sandpiper, 2 Little Grebes, 6+ Great Crested Grebes (not a great year for GCG this year) 4 Reed Warblers, 1 Kestrel, huge flock of mixed House/Sand Martins before moving off and still plenty of Swallows feeding/drinking on the water. Water level is low at the moment so plenty of bank activity with waders, gulls and waterfowl.
