Whitethroat and Blackcap singing in the picnic site scrub, Reed Bunting in the reeds on the edge of the small pond and Reed Warbler heard from the main Old Water reed bed, loudly singing.
There were 3 Little Egrets on the Old Water pools and a further bird in the main estuary, 4 in total. Waders on the main estuary are slowly increasing in numbers now, Lapwing and Curlew now up to 30+ each and 12 or so Redshank, no sign of any Dunlin or any other small waders though.
A wander around the car park I photographed some wonderful flowers, ostensibly prickly in nature, Dog Rose and Bramble have fabulous flowers..
