23rd April

Common Tern: a pair arrived on the lake at 7.15am.

Yellow Wagtail: one flew north at 7.00am.

Reed Warbler: a male has arrived in the reed bed on the end of Hanover Island. This brings the total to four birds.

Common Whitethroat: a male chased a female around area 31, as part of their courtship.

The female broods the youngsters at 6.40am in the bright early morning sunshine, after a short wait she regurgitated some food. The male then arrived thinking that the nest could do a little bit of DIY.
