An after work stroll along the track that separates No.5 from No.6 tank. I met Jaquci and Idris Roberts for a chat and we were interupted by a sickly looking Brown Rat on the path ahead.

No photo description available.

Shortly after SO’H was along the bank watching c500 Black-tailed Godwit which included 2 colour ringed birds. A small flock of 20 Dunlin and several Northern Lapwing. Ducks were few but did include 21 Tufted Duck, 3 Common Pochard, c100 Mallard, 8 Eurasian Teal and an assortment of other species. A Western Marsh Harrier dislodged the shorebirds but they soon resettled.

A few hundred Common Swift were low over the banks of No.6 and c1000 Common Starling were mostly moulting juvenile birds.

A young Brown Toad was making its way across the track on no.5 tank to the damp ditches.

In the far distance the adult female Peregrine was sat on the blue topped chimney over at Weston Point.

Two adult and 2 juvenile Little Ringed Plover (SO’H) were on the drying out mitigation pools.
